Ashley Ross: 10/27/03

Ashley Ross: 10/27/03

Lives and works in Oakland, California

10/27/03 is a body of work that explores religious indoctrination and identity within the confines of a religious upbringing. In this body of work, I'm questioning who gets to constitute the spiritual value of a black individual and whether that spiritual value can co-exist within environments of divisiveness and trauma. Informed by my own personal experiences, 10/27/03 is a visual and metaphorical interpretation of my religious childhood experiences. Through the use of allegorical portraiture, I investigate how growing up with stringent belief systems incapacitates the body and mind—to further understand how our traumas and experiences inform the Black psyche.
