Revelation uses digital art to blur the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation and the critical portrayal of women, amongst the lack of black female acknowledgment within western art.
By creating large scale prints on both paper and acetate allow the work to further explore the limits of these traditions and find connections between the spaces they are displayed, the materials and the images themselves. 
Revelation inserts the black female body in order to empower, educate, explore and recognise a group of overshadowed women and their loss within the renaissance era. It does so through editing and recreating the poses and works from a series of Chapels and old masters such as, Edgar Degas' After bath series, Michelangelo's The creation of Adam, Rubens' Leda and the swan, Manet's Olympia and Bouguereau's Evening mood etc.
