Black Numinous Delights presents the study of the true beauty of individualism from racial identity, assimilation and unjustified circumstances.

Exploring the properties of the effect of a fear-based social institution that appeal to the viewers’ senses, as opposed to the individuals struggle from themselves. 

Found inflammatory objects with propagandistic racist histories inspire much of this new body of work. The work ranges from fabricated natural and artificial environments, illuminated sculptures that incorporate photographic imagery constructed from recycled materials, an arrangement of paintings illustrating historical representations and assemblages incorporating historical memorabilia, reused and recycled materials.
