About the work

"The repetition of facial outlines in profile gives shape to the river of time, the forms and features that flow through his veins as DNA, yielding to the ancestors whose lives have gone before and who ‘work their mojo’ through him. Physical characteristics mark ancestral lines and familial relations—honouring both his Yoruba and Native American heritage—and, more expansively, the many faces outlined pay homage to unsung heroes whose contribution to the progress of humanity and the service of others deserves recognition." Gina Buenfeld-Murley, All Rendered Truth.
