Angie Redmond is a figurative and portrait artist from Chicago, IL. Her work focuses on personal experiences and feelings that may be shared with the viewers. She uses her personal narrative to honor her race and celebrate all of the human spirit.
Some of Angie’s artwork is presented in her series entitled, “Crown and Glory”. This series is a celebration of natural African American hair! It consists of images of several different natural hair styles with negative words (such as buckwheat and ignorant) embedded within them. The words are meant to be juxtaposed to the person in a way to say that this person has natural hair, but that does not qualify them as buckwheat or ignorant. This series is announcing that black hair is beautiful and should be celebrated for its distinctiveness.
Angie is an artist because this is absolutely her passion and she could not image doing anything else.
