In 2019 Rev. Pat Bumgardner invited me to host my first solo exhibition in the gallery space at Metropolitan Community Church of New York. If you follow my art then you know that my works are narrative-based and that my artwork explicitly targets racism and injustice. The closing exhibition was halted due to the pandemic and the artwork has remained in the church until now. There is one piece in particular that I felt may have been too explicit for the Church (go figure), but when the murder of George Floyd took place and all of the protesting became global, I knew that God wanted my artwork to be up displaying in a gallery where people would be forced to confront its visual realities, and not locked away in a storage unit. I believe Jesus said "No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light." No matter how imperfect I am, God continues to use me and my talents. Say what you want about whoever you want, God knows who belongs to Him.
