Torkwase Dyson

Torkwase Dyson’s paintings, drawings and sculptures are informed by the contemporary and historical conditions in and through which Black people negotiate systems and deeply rooted ideological orders within built and natural environments in the United States. She merges ideas such as site and built environments, nature and culture under the classification of environmentalism. Fascinated with transformations, ambiguities and environmental changes that place these subjects in relationship to each other, Dyson’s work revolves around investigating our connections to imagination, materiality, geography and belonging.
