I’ll share a common thread with you a quote by author Toni Cade Bambara from the chapter On the Issue of Roles from The Black Woman: An Anthology:  “The revolution begins with the self,  in the self. We’d better take time  to fashion revolutionary selves, revolutionary lives, revolutionary relationships. Mouth don’t win the war “

Through collage, The WomenFolk i Crown series continues the theme on  metamorphosis within the realms of a woman’s soul, the beauty recovered and restored from life’s obstacles and achievements.

 Adorned with the smaller case alphabet letter i,  mainly on the arm and hand /fist, symbolizes the powerful independence of the WomenFolk selves.

Outlines of the bodies represent deities of the soul self. They wear their crowns for the victory, glory, honor of wellbeing in the seasons of revolution.

“Clymenza is brilliant, her work magnificent. She has the eyes of an artist who can sculpt her ideas and create ancient goddesses of water, the moon and skies.  I’m crazy about her work!”  Geoffrey Holder
