The beauty of the concept of whimsy is that it has many interpretations. Consider a satirist like Jonathon Swift or Samuel Clemens, or more recently Mel Brooks or Mike Judge. Their whimsy has a meaningful undercurrent. In my soft pastel on prepared surface, whimsy is employed to distort the perspective of a Jamestown building from 400 years ago. This structure is stretched, transforming it into the White House. In effect, my piece unifies the progression of African blood in Colonial and Modern America. My undercurrent: I descent from the African pirates' booty brought to Jamestown in 1619.
My thanks to juror, Maleonn.
