Lavett Ballard is a mixed media, collage artist that tells stories of African Americans history using a mix of archival photos with paper and acrylic on wood, wood fences and slices.


"I use reclaimed large and small aged wood fences, as a symbolic reference to how fences keep people in and out, just as racial and gender identities can do the same socially. These fences are then arranged as 'altars' as icons to honor the strong the self-identity of each subject."

- Lavett Ballard
