  • "The figures move beyond just being about desire and sexuality to deal with multiple representations of selves that exist in a body that is corporeal, spiritual, cosmological, emotional, biological, and physical. My works are more about transition, spiritual inner struggles, and the psychological aspects of black women’s bodies."
    —M. Florine Démosthène
