Genesis Tramaine (photo credit: Charla Harlow)
I am a female painter with a masculine spirit. My passion translates, as I create abstract portraits of men and women who transcend blackness as political or representative. I consider the individual because that’s the way I like to be considered. Painting is one of the ways I stay connected to my complexion as a woman. My paintings invoke the voices of ancestors and give praise to the world around me. I am totally excited about art; it’s really the only thing I think about. Using an urban and raw approach, I create pieces with daring and provocative uses of color. Where I‘m from, blue and purple are regular expressions of black skin. I use exaggerated features and at times “jester-like” facial expressions to give focus to my unique interpretation of the black face. Each painting captures spirited emotion and is intended to lend focus to the untapped, underrepresented spirit of Black People. My social and political consciousness as a woman painter is informed by the constant challenges I face as a woman of color due to the societal imbalances of race, class and gender. The daily rhythm of these experiences has the greatest impact on the shape, structure and depth of each painting.
