ART Digital | Featured Artist in ART in AMERICA Instagram, Qualeasha Wood

From Art In America Instagram

Qualeasha Wood’s work combines sculpture, Jacquard textiles and digital media to evoke the “realities around living in the Black female body that do and might exist.” In her takeover, Wood describes her methodology while offering a look at her latest work in progress, a depiction of the artist as a Christ-like figure. Wood enumerates the steps she takes to make her piece, which include weaving selfies composited in Photoshop into tapestry, which she then embellishes with beads. Wood says her efforts are meant to push the limits of representation by asking questions like: Why can’t a Black woman be God?
