On November 1, I begin my artist in residence session at BoxoPROJECTS Artist Residency in Joshua Tree, CA. And during the residency I will continue to develop my series of 23 artworks interpreting the stories of African American Homesteaders who settled in the far Eastern Mojave Desert in 1910.
Being an artist in residence enables the artwork to evolve uninterrupted and in an environment without distractions. In fact, last weekend during open studio preview sessions I shared the progression of my art-making process with visitors. In addition, visitors viewed initial pencil sketches, experimental samples leading to the finished artwork and an artist proof of what will be the final version of each panel.
