Within this Skin is a series of oil paintings that began as a response to a deep exploration into Breeze’s ancestral heritage, researching old records, wills, oral histories, and images, she traced back into the plantations where her family were enslaved. Breeze states, “I realized at a certain point, as an African American, my blood becomes the blood of all black and brown people. I realized that to trace my line of history was to trace a much larger history that moved from wound to wound, and survival after survival.
