Landed in the ATL!!!

I finally landed in ATL and our migration to the South is complete. SO, far I LOVE Georgia. It feels good here and the trees are amazing. I am looking forward to writing and seeing how being in the South will influence my art and feelings about poverty.
I am already doing recon on locations to do some guerrila art stunts and spectacles. The soapbox and bullhorn travels and are ready to be broken in. Stay tuned for my new work an experiments. Lady Terror: The Southern Fried Remix Edition. The LADY TERROR show will debut this weekend with video footage from the "Liquor Store as Performance Space" and "Yoga Studio in Fried Food Shacks" spectacles that happened on the streets of the Chi in February 2010. Chi TOWN!! I miss you already.

Thanks Randall. I appreciate the love.

Artist Statement

I create art for the ones who lost their voice a long time ago. I believe that impromptu spectacles can bring awareness to social justice issues that paralyze our communities. Lady Terror examines the relationship between public space and performance space and also explores ranting as a medium to address social issues and as a tool to empower communities. My art is local and neighborhood specific in its execution but global in its ideas around poverty, injustice and violence.
