In Harlem, where I spent weeks and months cutting my creative teeth! Growing artistic roots, where my musical aspirations, social and political awareness and creative juices were awakened, nourished and blossomed. Come see, ‘Transformation; The Beautiful Cruelty Of Time and Distance’, the exhibition will traverse a musical and visual lanscape of found objects and mixed media that in dreams or daydreams asked, no demanded that I give attention and life to by reimaging musically/visually.
