'Olivier' is part of a series of works entitled 'The Side Profile Series' that explores complexities within representations of blackness. In this suite of eight oil paintings, young, black men are portrayed in a side profile, resembling mugshots, as a method to re-contextualize and bring into focus the black body – revealing that each subject depicted is replete with individual characteristics, vulnerabilities, and truths. This body of work crafts a space for exploring practices of looking at representations of blackness.
