Mixed media


SRSI is an acronym for "Speculative Response to Self Isolation. This is #14 in a current ongoing series. I've been using whatever canvas I have on hand. I also noticed that with the larger pieces my application of the paint has changed and is a bit freer. I don't consider myself an abstract artist. I never made paintings like these before and I also want to note that these pieces look quite masculine in stark contrast to my known style. I woke up on May 6th, 2020 with the intention to work on a public art project but almost out of nowhere I ended up creating 15 gestural abstract designs and counting. I'm excited about the possibilities and hope you come along for the ride.

About the artist

"My name is Ohso. I'm a self-taught, mixed media artist, born & raised in New Orleans, LA! I primarily paint imaginative, 3-D composition portraits of Women of Color with "Living Waters" as a prominent, recurring biblical metaphor. Water in my work represents purification, spiritual need, & eternal life. Many pieces feature women
with "Flowing Tresses" sculptured onto the canvas because I view the hair as the "Crown and Glory" of a woman. Hair can look rough and jagged like mountains or flow like ocean waves. Other recurring images in my work are swirls, birds & butterflies that may represent death, persecution, salvation, or signify solitude & peace. My mediums of choice are acrylic & celluclay but I often incorporate airbrush, pastels, ink & watercolors.

I attended New Orleans Center for Creative Arts while in high school, and studied psychology & fine art at Delgado Community College in New Orleans, LA. In 1999 I received my degree in Computer Graphic Design from Southeast College of Technology in Metairie, LA, and was inducted into the Alpha Beta Kappa, National Honor Society. I'm also a 1st Degree Black Belt in Isshogai Ryu Karate-Do and Co-Own Peace Keeper Martial Arts Academy with my husband. In the summer of 2005, I founded ArtistiKIDS! a visual arts program for Young & Talented children but at the close of 2005, my family relocated to Texas after hurricanes Katrina & Rita destroyed our home.

My earlier works are sensual in nature but today my talents are used as a vehicle to fulfill the “Great Commission”.
Through my paintings, I introduce visual testimonies reflecting the beauty of creation.” Peace & Blessings!"
