Shadows in the Garden focuses on the work of Texas based artist Delita Martin. It highlights works from several exhibitions and works held in various collections. Contents of the book include a forward by artist and curator Vicki Meek, an interview with the artist conducted by Joshua Asante, essays by Dr. Kheli R. Willetts and Gary Reece, and select bibliography. The book also features full color reproductions of all works.
The works included in this publication examine the transition of women into their “spiritual self.” These works reinforce the bond between women and how they co-exist in the physical and spiritual realms. Through layering of various mediums and symbols I can pull the viewer out of a logical and common world and place them within a space that offers a glimpse into the spirit world.
