Artist Statement

"I chose to use this piece to highlight the haunting pain that still lingers in the communities of those who descended from the enslaved. " - Gemynii E.

Gemynii is a self taught artist who mainly works with painting. She is also a poet, art instructor, writer, and community activist. Her paintings focus mainly on abstract portraits of people of color and is influenced heavily by social issues, music, body and gender acceptance, and the over all Black experience. Her work can often render audiences uncomfortable, forcing them to critically think about blackness, representation and the body in a white supremacist capitalist patriarchal society and within the contemporary art world.
