COURTENAY WELCOME
Artist, Activist, Creative Director and Critical Thinker.

Welcome’s work explores the rich complexities of race, memory, space and time through painting, installation, text and performance. These explorations tackle, mimic, reconstruct and shift the perspective of universal “truths” within the white walls of the western art world.
 Welcome depicts the sense of self though lived experiences. Documenting transitions from one embodiment to another, while critically addressing the ways in which these transitions are perceived by institutional means. All informed by a critical infrastructure of decolonisation.

RE EMBODIMENT 2017°
TO PRESENT TENSION AND DISRESS WITHIN 
DIVIDES OF FRANGIBILITY.











In the pure arrogance of the reason, we have all overlooked it. We have suffered its existence to escape our senses, solely through want of belief — of faith — whether it be faith in Revelation, or faith in self.
