Troy Jones


Troy Jones' latest body of work is based on the African American experience in today's America. How one can be there and not be noticed for their achievements. African Americans have played a major role in the history of this country as well as the world. We as a people need to see ourselves in the right light. In this body of work Troy Jones begins to bring this light to his people. He combines African Mask with contemporary African Americans in the pieces for this series. These masks sometimes shows the true spirit of a person while at other times hides that spirit. His goal is upliftment and to reconnect African Americans with that African spirit.
