CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Okla Jones Recommends: While searching her lineage in West Africa, Charmaine Minniefield was inspired to create a series of paintings that ultimately led to this exhibition. It ties together the history of the Middle Passage, Minniefield’s family identity in Gambia, her heritage, and how all these factors contribute to the woman she is and seeks to become. The ancestry of people of African descent in America has been lost since the inception of this country’s version of slavery over 400 years ago. Indigo Prayers explores that connection, and the pride and pain that comes with it. -OJ

From the venue:

Indigo Prayers: A Creation Story, a series of paintings by local Atlanta artist, Charmaine Minniefield, inspired by her time in the Gambia, West Africa searching for her grandmother's ancestral lines. The resulting body of work builds on an ongoing exploration of the Ring Shout, an African American practice of resistance whose West African origins predate enslavement. This full-bodied rhythmic prayer was taught to Minniefield by her great-grandmother. It was performed by her ancestors during enslavement as a way to secretly preserve their African identity.
