Oil on Canvas. Putting forth the concept that identity is fluid and open, Owens’ subjects cross boundaries that hold in fixed and stable constructs. The black and brown bodies in her work venture into the outdoors, which has been historically an uninviting or dangerous space for people of color. The Great American Outdoors and the Arian alpine landscape have taken on meaning as a place for spiritual, physical, and psychological growth that does not include Black people. Presenting Blackness outdoors crosses this boundary and examines both the healing power and the dangers faced by Black folks in this space.
