Some She Recognizes is a quiet study of light on Black skin and hair. This series takes the time to zoom in on a frozen moment. A seemingly innocuous fragment that could easily be overlooked. It takes time to remember the value of of our appendages and parts. It makes connections between this mediation and taking the time to groom. Taking the time to groom ourselves is to say we have worth.

Some She Recognizes is about demanding a pleasure space, that plays with primping and polishing not as an assimilation to the fashion-beauty complex; but a space of satisfying self-care and artistry. It considers apparatuses of dissemination—once passed along from matrilineal generations and now circulating throughout online communities.

They are potions, lotions and therapeutic hands.

The small works that intimate in size and elicit proximity from the viewer to interact with them. They are portable, handleable, tactile like votive offerings or lucky charms.
