Gherdai Hassel
My work suggests that identity should be self-determined and understood, My work explores concepts of representation, perception, identity creation and childhood themes. The collages are avatars, an exploration of self, as an exploration of various materials. My work is a reflection of who I show up as in the world, a black woman. The desire to story tell is at the core of my work. The black woman’s story, a story of play, revelation, revolution, imagination, evolution, self reflection, passion. A human story.
