Pretty Thoughts

May 21 - July 2, 2021

It’s more-so a way of control for me. I paint more when I feel like my personal and social life is out of control. Because at least (with) this I can control my outcome.

In “On grieving…,” Michael Constantine examines the stages of grief in reaction to his experience with racism and trauma. As a continuation of his emotional journey, “Pretty Thoughts” takes us through the anatomy of coping with anxiety. Michael creates dreamlike works to escape the wounds of unpleasant realities induced by societal pressures of race and identity.
