"Interwoven throughout Eternity is work made during the pandemic about the interconnectivity of human and non-human and an appreciation and celebration of diversity and our shared humanity. Experiencing a global pandemic made us realize that our life, time, and resources are limited. Various layers of images represent living in the present moment and to the fullest in all of our life. Our connection with people of color is key to our portrait work. We attempt to recreate art history featuring Bipoc representation, inspired by the rhizome as a metaphor for community. As artists of color, we heal ourselves by working with other talents of color to find common threads that weave throughout our universe." - Essentials Creative
