Design Statement:

Blues for an Alabama Sky by Pearle Cleage takes place in 1930's Harlem during the ending waves of the Harlem renaissance in a complex environment fueled by segregation, hate, and the empowerment of the African American community. I found my greatest inspiration in paintings by Aaron Douglas. I overlayed Douglas's images onto my scenery to illustrate the history of what was, and look towards and what could be. The exterior is a harsh and unforgiving New York City. The interior is warm and inviting, though run down.
