"In Naked Abstractions I'm trying to move more freely than in Senegal. In this series my paintings are abstract, but they still refer to Vodun spirituality. In Beginning, I use the Orisha Yemaya to represent a cosmic womb. In some religious stories, Yemaya, the feminine principle in creation, is represented by the blue color."
