Carved portrait on cotton rag paper. The act of cutting away from my matrix (the surface of the wood or linoleum block) to shape an image is synonymous with the way one has to cut away negative ideologies imposed on them by others to expose or embrace their true selves. In this same sense, Black women have had to cut away the negative stereotypes imposed on them by external forces to express their true identity. Edition 6/15 2011. Signed.
