Gherdai Hassell (b. 1991, Bermuda) received her BS from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (2013). She has showcased her work in Bermuda and China. A painter, she works primarily in oil paint, but also practices in mixed media. Her paintings typically embrace the black figure, a vibrant display of experience. Her work explores ideas about representation, perception, identity creation, and childhood themes. With her captivating collage works, she captures and collects the gaze. She currently lives and works in China. Thank you for the outpour of love and support for the work. The work is beyond me, I can't claim myself as the source for it. I'm just the vessel. It's an honor for me to create this work. I'm doing what i've been called to, and for that, I'm grateful. Peace & Blessings xo
