I love this profile written by Angela N. Carroll for Black Art In America! I had a great time building with Angela and discussing my work with her. In deep appreciation of her and her work as a critical art writer and artist-archivist. (www.angelancarroll.com)

Excerpt below:
“I think ritual performance just makes more sense for what my work is.” Ghee says, “It is ritual. It’s about ritualizing the mundane — the things that seem very simple, but also are very complex. Ritual can be the simple things that we do but the ramifications are so deep for what we experience. Or [ritual] deconstructs or reconstructs [us] internally.” By weighting the word “performance” with the preface “ritual”, Ghee not only establishes her process and the documentation of her process as something more than performative, but she also offers a critical assessment and framing for her work as an active, community-centered practice. The spaces she occupies and the histories she channels center Black experience, draw from African diasporic spiritual systems and assert intuition as an essential feature of her artistic process."

So excited to be featured in Issue 08 of BmoreArt Magazine with my Grandfather Ghee (gheetheartist.com)!! Written by Rebekah Kirkman, with photographs by Kelvin Bulluck!

Excerpt below:
Phylicia Ghee doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t making art. As a child, her mother would drop her and her brother off in the mornings at her grandparents’ house in Randallstown on the way to work. Phylicia’s grandfather, Edward Ghee—known to everyone as Ghee; Phylicia calls him Dad—would draw with her all day. “That’s just what I remember—us drawing since I could hold a crayon or a pencil,” she says.
