FLOWSTATE: Self and Community Healing through Art
Moses Sun fuses hip-hop, jazz, afro-futurism, and the black southern diaspora of his childhood into a mix of visuals that blurs the lines between digital and analog art. We welcome this Seattle-artist addition to our next series and we can't wait for you to join us!

Flow Shala, Lower Level, 203 W Chestnut St, Bellingham, WA 98225, USA
About the event
Moses Sun Artist’s Statement:
My work expresses blackness across multiple media platforms, laying bare my personal history, and humanity. I make drawings on paper and iPad, digital and analogue photographs, sculpture, and installations, then sample them and in the hip-hop ethos of "grinding" output them as relief sculptures, digital prints, video animations, games, and social media apps. I work intuitively, letting go of pretense so that the story reveals to the viewer an entry point, a beginning but never an end.
An exchange between my ancestors and I occurs with each studio session, breeding a ferocious need to visualize the connections I see between cultures and belief. My work bears witness to my struggle to make sense of an inhumane world. The weight of years of chaotic personal, political, and social change has helped me to understand that much of my work is a visual meditation, searching for meaning when words fail.
