I am an artist first but I am also a collector and member of Diasporal Rhythms, an organization of collectors on the south side of Chicago so if you deem me unworthy to be part of your discussion or unfit for the format of this group it makes no difference however art is purely relative to perception and obviously some perceive my work to be acceptable ... If I believed everyone would embrace my work I wouldn't be a true artist .... if I offended you, I have done my job. Thank you for sparking a conversation around the controversy of my image and hopefully you'll come around to the realization that I am an artist worth collecting not for financial investment purposes, but to put reserves into your spiritual account for "future" investments in your soul to accrue. That's all I have to say for now.... Thank you to those who have and continue to support me and my artistic endeavors and I appreciate the criticism as well. Peace and god bless.

I am in total disagreement with your comments. Another format is needed for these discussions!

Comment by carol finney on August 1, 2014 at 11:34am

I think your format needs another group. This is for collectors, not political views!

Peace and Blessings to Ruby Dee ...another "Queen Mother" sits among the elders.

Love to her family from those of us who listen to and laughed with a "beautiful couple." Now, they walk together...

I really like the image of different generations "embraced" by a collection of art that must have taken a long time to acquire.

The child going up the stairs reflects the power of positive art to help young people grow...

True collectors are born and  their passion is passed on from the elders to the children-great photo

 Here's a tip for serious collectors:  Want to melt the heart of an artist and get a better deal...bring your baby with you-not the old ones (smile.)  If you get a moment-google: the art and poetry of grandmaster  taijay

Peace & Blessings

It's good to find an Afrikan art network, letting the eyes elaborate on the beauties of ethnicity. Im glad to see such melaninated beauties. Ashe!
