In this conversation with WonderRoot’s Floyd Hall, artist Bethany Collins discusses how she deconstructs the exploration of race and identity via text imagery, her connection to the South, and being featured at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

“I am interested in the unnerving possibility of multiple meanings, dual perceptions, and limitlessness in the seemingly binary. Drawing objects repeatedly allows me to fully understand the object in space, while defining and redefining my own racial landscape.” 

Bethany Collins’ work can also be seen in the ONE ONE exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, opening tonight.
