                 Interdisciplinary Artist:     Multi-Media Art Design:

                  D.  DelReverda-Jennings: 

I make striking signature sculptural pieces and compelling 2-dimensional narrative paintings  which address my lineal connection to and illuminate the importance of African American, Afro-Caribbean, Caribbean Latina/o and Afro-Latin's in the context of the African-Diaspora culture and the divine feminine/Women's art of the Diaspora.  My work celebrates women, depicting females who are in a state of self-discovery, insight and affirmation, while exploring the complexities of bi-racial/multi ethnic/multiracial-cultural identity and referencing from the spiritual and religious histories that have aesthetic traditions based in the African Diaspora.   I use identity, women's issues, stereotypical assumptions, indigenous wisdom's-folklore, ancestral memory and nature as material in the construct of my work as well as traditional and original personal symbolism, aesthetic references and reflective imagery pervasive of African, American, Native Alaskan and Taino cultures. 

In fashioning my work I utilize a wide spectrum of media and materials integrating vibrant hues, organic patinas, complex surfaces and incised relief's, hand wrought metal treatments and emphasized textures.  I have also brought facets of my complex textural work to my exclusive artisan "Statement" design jewelry line which features hand-hammered precious and semi-precious metals, semi-precious stones and mixed-media..that speak in bold character and substantial elements, capturing the spirit of the contemporary woman seeking unique pieces of distinction in wearable artistry that communicate luxury, style and elegance.

My work has been exhibited internationally in Canada and the Caribbean and I am honored to continually receive invitations to create commissioned work, participate in juried exhibitions, invitational shows and compete for awards.    A number of pieces were shown in the recent, "SPEAK !  Women Sharing Voices Through Art," a four month long, 2012 presentation of the King Arts Center in Columbus, Ohio.    I had work recently showcased in the 2012 presentation of "AMOR2:  Hecho en Indiana / Latino Art In Indiana," held at the ARCH @ Chatham Gallery in Indianapolis.    I have work in The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, Michigan's acclaimed, avant-garde showcase of "Visions Of Our 44th President."  My work is held in their collections as well.   

I am currently exhibiting work in FLAVA  FRESH IX !_ 2012 - 2013, which is my  personal/professional initiative to bring about greater awareness and appreciation for the work of newly-discovered, emergent, and under-recognized artists and Artists' Of Color.  The exhibition series is an annual six month long, three exhibition, juried, group presentation.       

In 2012, I was commissioned to create a large scale public art piece "At The Crossroads__Totemic Column," for the Buckingham building development located on Indiana Avenue as a tribute to the African American community.     My work has been selected  repeatedly throughout the years as a feature in the annual Indianapolis Marion County Public Libraries (IMCPL) gala exhibition showcase, "Meet The Artists,' including the 25th Anniversary Celebration in 2013.     More of my artistry will be seen in a solo exhibition entitled "Caught Between The Sun And Heaven," at the Arts Council of Indianapolis' Gallery 924, in 2013-2014.
