Project Description

Though separated by a generation, both Laylah Ali and Jon Key mine similar territory to create psychologically loaded and open-ended narratives that reflect their respective personal experiences. Both artists utilize a visual language of austere simplicity and bright colors, employing the figure as a field of projection for the viewer and as a means to approach a nuanced discussion about embodiment, heritage, and freedom.
