Tower Series

While visiting the African American Museum of History and Culture, I saw the exhibit, Guard Tower from Angola Prison. It is an extremely powerful exhibit and it doesn't one take long to be intentionally disturbed by the reality of the tower’s original purpose. The experience that I had with this exhibit made me start thinking about all the "towers" we construct to protect ourselves, justly or not. This series will have many more tower paintings in its completion.
