Description

This work centers around understanding the complexities of identity construction for people of African descent throughout American history, especially African-American males. Works on paper and on wood using acrylic paint, fabric, glue, paper, and oil stick reflect Pellom McDaniels III's thinking from the election of President Barack Obama in 2008 to the Charlottesville protest in the summer of 2017. "Black: Towards an Afro-Cosmological Understanding" is his attempt to decouple blackness from whiteness while simultaneously creating empowering imagery associated with the African continent to render European and American ideas about race powerless.
