Ebola Came to Mali on a Bus
My work explores culture, identity, and social justice in steel sculpture and installations that also include photography, video, and sound. Bridging diverse cultures, my work celebrates the unique beauty and genius of each as well as what we have in common. Cultural preservation is important to my work where my research takes the form of immersive fieldwork. Annual visits to Mali provide inspiration. I have been working in Mali for more than two decades. The evolution of my sculpture traces my enduring exploration of sculptural form, my ongoing relationship with African culture, and my lifelong involvement in political activism.
