NADA Presents “FAIR” || Week 2: God Is a Young Hot Ebony and She’s on The Internet w/ Qualeasha Wood (2020)

Qualeasha Wood comes of age in a cultural landscape wherein social media has moved black femme vernacular from the margins to the center of mainstream fashion and corporeal aesthetics. See God in the Mirror [Pt.2], (2020) belongs to a series of tapestries embedding  Medieval Catholic iconography in native digital composition strategies. Her work is striking because it suggests that Wood has chosen to skip the accompanying lament that might consume an artist a generation older than she, and instead use this new reality as prima materia on which to pivot towards something new. After all: getting paid is the new Black, right?

Qualeasha Wood (b. 1996, Long Branch, NJ) holds a BFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI. Her work spans sculptural, textile, and digital media and suggests realities around living in the black female body that do and might exist. Wood uses this range of materials to create intricate dialogues across time and novel perspectives on the subject. She has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions at Cooper Cole, Toronto, ON; New Image Art, Los Angeles, CA; Gluon Gallery, Milwaukee, WI; Rhode Island School of Design's  Woods Gerry Gallery, RISD Exposé Gallery, and Benson Hall Gallery, Providence, RI. Qualeasha Wood lives and works in Rhode Island, USA.
