|Enigmatic, Equivocal by Teri McCans|
From Teri's website:
Teri transforms her interpretations into a visual language that is accessible yet befitting the world’s complexity. She finds immense joy when her work connects to those not accustomed to the world of Art. Although her work is influenced from personal narrative; her use of color, shape, and form is universal and recognizable.
Kamilah Campbell, originally from Philadelphia, she earned her BFA from Clemson University, and her MFA from Notre Dame University.
The piece below is from an installation at Brozosport College in 2014, where Ms. Campbell taught Sculpture.
|Ms. Lady by Kamilah Campbell|
From Kamilah's artist statement:
My work is an iteration of the African-American home where the beautiful and grotesque nature of its interior is represented in a physically and psychologically engulfing surface or space.
