Time is a Circle: A Simultaneous Examination of the Past, Present & Future of Black Ascension
Llucy Llong is an American artist living and working between Charlotte, NC and her hometown of Atlanta, GA. Through collage, animation, and textiles, she weaves together the Spirit, culture, and tradition of original descendants of the African diaspora. Her current work focuses on an initiative, Ascend Together In Power, which is a nostalgic approach to the restoration of Black American families through the pillars of lineage reflection, introspection, and future building.
How we connect to our history, ancestry, culture, traditions, familial patterns, spiritual practices, etc.
The core belief of Ascend Together In Power is that a strong, healthy family unit is comprised of well-balanced individuals who practice supreme introspection and are in tune with their higher Source/Self.
Building a foundation from pillars of lineage reflection and introspection and deciding what traditions, morals, and values will be continued from the past/present. This is also an opportunity to create new ideals to be instilled within our youth.
