All bow to Her Highness the Bird Princess
I’ve had to draw a conclusion based on what I glimpsed through the stitching of the person suit that you wear. And the conclusion that I’ve drawn is that you are…
In the film, Quvenzhané has an ear-splitting scream that completely expresses her frustration at the difficult world she lives in, and after her father tells her that her mother “swam away,” she screams for her mother to return. No one will ever forget the power of that scream.
“I’m mostly a girl so I really do these things but I scream and that came to me and I’ve been doing that since I was a little girl,” she said, “and I would always scream for my brother so the other team can lose. That’s not very girlie but it’s something that I know how to do and always did.”
“Did they know about that when they put you in the movie?”
“No. Well, the first day, the audition, I didn’t tell them at all. So when I got the audition and I first got to the set, I did it. So they didn’t even know about it. Right in the middle or in the beginning or something. They didn’t even know about it; they were kinda surprised.”
“What did they say?”
“They said, ‘WOW, YOU ARE VERY LOUD!’ And I was just like, ‘I know, that’s why I didn’t do it.’ And when they came to the scene where I had to burp, I had to secretly act like I drank some water and I burped and then they asked me, ‘how did you burp?’ And I said, ‘cause I know how to do it on command,’ and they said, ‘do it,’ so you know? I burped and they was like, ‘WOW, you should have told us before.’ So it was really funny to see them react to what I did and they didn’t even know about it.”
“They learned more about you every day.”
“Thank you. Anybody calls for Quvenzhané, I know they’re calling me, cause that’s one of a kind.”"

Series: Self-Evident Truths
These paintings represent a modern study in dichotomy and perception from a historical context using portraiture as the interpretive engine.
I often use the image of the black woman in unaccustomed/atypical context; derived to create a visual tension between historical fact, misinformation and myth. The viewer is lured into the possible narrative of the depicted figure by her beauty, strength and grace; however immediately enters an intellectual menagerie where they are confounded by the disconnected visual clues. Is she slave or slaveholder? Is she captive or free, is she servant or served? Is she factual or fictional in a historical context? All of these questions and more provide basis for the individual viewers journey of allegorical interpretation.
The images are imbued with cultural and ethnic symbolism that provides insight into the historical context of the painting. Yet, the icons, combined with my personal visual vocabulary, may remain unseen or misread by the “unknowing” eye; the eye that never learned the historic bases for all the possibilities in the lives of these women. In a society that often make instant cultural judgements based on visual cues that are often stereotypical, but not always, I feel offering ethnic imagery that defies common visual library of the modern citizen may challenge each individuals biases and foregone conclusions of their own notions of what race represents in history and therefore in humanity.
The images beg the question: Is “Truth” self-evident? Who’s “Truth”? How does knowledge, experience and perception of one’s “self” determine what is evident? If the view of oneself is skewed is it possible to see another clearly?
