Being raised in a Christian household I grew up not being able to relate to the images I saw of Biblical figures, specifically the images of Adam and Eve. The idea of a black Adam and Eve once sounded too far fetched for me because so dominant is the Western representation of these biblical figures that I grew up thinking that the authentic representation of these figures was the one that followed a Western pictorial tradition and that later led to me feeling aggrieved by the lack of a black representation. With this series I became interested in exploring this idea of self-representation as I pose as Adam myself because I grew up not really seeing any representations of Adam and Eve that looked like me This body of work is meant to counter the dominant Western representation of Adam and Eve to normalize a black representation of these biblical figures. The nature of this series is performative as we also re-enact The Fall where Eve hands Adam the forbidden fruit (red apple) to eat.
