The term “reconciliation” connotes desire to ensure that the printed image reconciled two opposing views. Every silkscreen required a dark backdrop in order to see the printed image; it is only visible if two visitors are standing on opposites sides of the same screen.

At the same time the recycling aesthetic refers to my African roots.
