Whites are drawn to Black culture because of the extraordinary quality of it, our aesthetic, our style. We set the styles. We are the trendsetters of America. America is known globally for its culture, which is Black.

They want to look like us, but they don’t want to be us. They don’t want to live in our skin. It’s kind of a cultural voyeurism. It allows white people to safely tour Blackness without being subjected to the reality of being Black.

"Lisa" or something else … .
I painted this almost 2 years or so ago, it was one of my early forays int retro-futurism. I randomly found the reference image (creepin on the internet) I just really liked her look.  I can’t seem to be happy with a name for it. At first I called it “Lisa” for a reason I don’t remember. I included her in my first solo show "To Finite & Beyond" as a bonus to the physical show I paired each piece with song lyrics on my website.  This one I paired with the powerful Kendrick Lamar song "No Makeup". It seemed to fit, she appears to be hiding, I even changed the name to “Purple Haze” to match.  Now I’m not sure what I want to call it, I’m not really sure what feeling it evokes when people see it.
