The composition is from the artist's continuation of the relic series. The series uses abstraction and assemblage to explore constructed identity and the power held in the everyday object, particularly objects held in homes across the African diaspora. These combines include such items as flora, textiles, jewelry, tools, and photographs taken by the artist.
This piece is printed on a medium texture Stonehenge Vellum, 100% cotton cold press 250gsm paper with two deckled edges. This print was produced by hand, by the artist in New Haven, Connecticut.
