Kinetic Light / Alice Sheppard Residency

Alice Sheppard, balances on her hands, arms straight, and on a pair of silver crutches, lifting her lower body and wheelchair high. Alice’s head is tucked and her short curly hair peeks out from behind her strong arms. She is a coffee-skinned multiracial Black woman, wearing a shimmery gold bodysuit. Set against a black background, light reflects off her costume, chair, and crutches. Photo by Mengwen Cao.
