Zaire Miles-Moultrie

Exhibit Description
Through the timeless act of printmaking and the intricate process of collaging, I embark on a journey of reappropriation, enhancement, and empowerment; breathing new life into images of the past to resonate powerfully in the present. My artistic practice revolves around the fusion of disparate elements, forging connections between the historical and the contemporary, the personal and the collective.

Rooted deeply in my own experience with blackness and spirituality; my collages become portals to explore the complexities of identity and memory. Each meticulously cut, stitch, and layer are a deliberate act of storytelling, weaving together threads of history, culture, and emotion.

Through the work, I evoke the sense of otherworldly, where the familiar becomes enigmatic and the mundane becomes mystical. My work serves as both a reflection and a reinterpretation of narratives that shape our understanding of self and society; It is a celebration of resilience, and a testament to the enduring power of print making to provoke thought, stir emotion, and ignite change.

By embracing the transformative potential of collage, I embrace the notion that every cut piece carries with it the potential to rewrite history, to reclaim agency, and to reimagine the world anew. I invite dialogue, foster empathy, and challenge perceptions, ultimately striving to cultivate a more inclusive and equitable future for all.
