Part Four - The Impermanence of Sugarfoot
My grandmother taught me from a very young age how to cook. She also taught me right from wrong, and for better or worse, she instilled in me how society would view me as a black man. She was a loving but stern very reserved woman. "Aw, Sugarfoot!" was her verbal release.
The Impermanence of Sugarfoot confronts the stress and tension of hosting a dinner party; of preparing and slaving over a meal only to find yourself exhausted and without an appetite. It is at this moment you begin to reflect on what you have really sacrificed and what you are passing on.
The Impermanence of Sugarfoot is understanding what you are releasing and then moving on. That continued balance between tension and release is necessary for me to evolve as an artist and A. Man.
