These majestic African sculptures in Grace Coolidge's imagined green room are composed of living incarcerated heads and deceased oligarch bodies. These national emblems known in years past as being quintessentially American are now problematized and highly contested in the age of Trump.

Installation at the Atlanta Contemporary is composed of works done on watercolor and Xerox paper, drawn and collaged using ink, graphite, silver gouache, blade and glue.
