Art for Ukraine (31/81)


'“The Statement of Nature: A Reflection" series of which this work is part of, delves into the similarities between the ongoing societal quest to contain Black Bahamian women and the natural environment. “Weeds” explores the process of perspective in identity formation. Whiteness attempts to subvert the value of all other expressions of humanity by dictating the value systems that then condition our consciousness. However, given an alternative ethos, our self perceptions can be dramatically different. Weeds themselves are colloquially a matter of perspective as we search for beauty or utility through the lens of Eurocentrism. Employing a different frame of reference, the weed is viewed and valued as a rose and vice versa. Societal perceptions of beauty detain us within subjective aesthetics purported as absolutes.” - Alyssa Iferenta
