Life Cycle

Life Cycle

My aim is to convey a feeling of movement, past and present. I incorporated the adinkra symbol Sankofa which means “return and get it." It symbolizes the importance of learning from the past. East and Central Harlem have gone through a multitude of changes and transformation and it continues to do so and I look for the reader to get a sense of that change and optimism.

This piece was reproduced in etched steel and attached to the railing overlooking the Harlem River. 

Original specs: Sumi ink on paper, 11 x 17 inches

 

For public access: Enter the park using the ramp over Harlem River Drive at East 139th Street and Fifth Avenue. The Artist’s Cove in Harlem River Park near East 141st Street

Commissioned by the Harlem River Park Fund, 2011.
