The Obstruction Project: January 2019


In stock


January 2019. My long-time friend and former assistant challenged me to create something to go into our new house. It could not use black or white, and had to be made from “natural” materials. Bonus if it was inspired by a piece of text or book or something. I decided to respond to standing on the equator and making a map that orients the earth differently from what we are accustomed. What if we weren’t America-centric? What would happen if we looked at everything from a different point of view? I wanted this piece to question status quo.

The actual piece is 48×24 inches, and was painted using natural inks from The Toronto Ink Company. 

Moo printed digital print on cotton paper. 3.67″ x 8.5″

The profits from the sale of this and all The Obstruction Project I will donate to the following organizations: Multicultural BridgeCampaign ZeroBlack Lives MatterEqual Justice InitiativeSouthern Poverty Law CenterNational Museum of African American History and CultureCivil Rights MuseumBlack Women in Visual ArtThe Sentencing Project, and Black Women in Politics.
