Lakeshia Reid

Raleigh, NC

With a nod to the fantastical, Lakeshia Reid’s work offers interpretations of #BlackGirlMagic – a phrase/movement that celebrates positive messages and images of black women. Through the duality of abstraction and representation, she juxtaposes women of various demeanors with colorful layers of ornamentation and texture.  In this context, she explores their identities, and her own, while crossing a conceptual threshold.
