Higher Power: Elvira Clayton
Monday, April 19 – Saturday, August 7, 2021
My art pieces are ritualistic vessels holding stories of overlooked and forgotten people. Within the narratives of their lives, the truths and richness that define humanity can be found.
My practice is research-based and is inspired by ancestral reverence. Working across mediums including installation, photography, and assemblage, I explore personal, historical, and re-imaged memory.
I am interested in illuminating that thread that connects us to our past while showing how our present is shaped by political and social history.
