Artist Statement. My creative process is a harmonious fusion of diverse artistic disciplines, a bridge between tradition and contemporary innovation. With fashion, clothing, accessories and graphic design, I weave silhouettes and craft visuals that embody the feminine, express culture, and reinforce our relationship with nature.
I employ a blend of techniques including design construction, graphic production, layering, patterning, and weaving. I create visual and wearable art that utilize a palette of colors, shapes, contouring and symbolism to evoke spiritual connections, honor cultural heritage, and distill the very essence of the feminine identity. My process is a delicate equilibrium between honed technique and daring experimentation; it is about more than making beautiful pieces, it’s about evoking emotion through the work, in the form of icons of the feminine spirit, that prompt contemplation on our interconnection with nature.
My compositions draw from my spiritual journey and life experiences, and the resulting intertwining of perspective, craft, mediums, and materials, form the base, structure, and core of my artistic vision. It is a narrative intricately woven with precision and fueled by passion.
Through my art, I aspire to contribute to a broader discourse on notions of identity, sustainable living, and the transformative potential of art to transcend societal boundaries. I invite viewers to explore the threads of our experiences that reinforce our bond with nature and the self; amidst the kaleidoscope of cultures that define our world. I work to create art that resonates deeply, bringing audiences to reflect, connect, and celebrate our shared human experience. ~ Amenta B. ~ aka Afro.Empress
