Paul S. Briggs–Cell Personae: The Impact of Incarceration on Black Lives
Through his arresting sculptural ceramics, Paul Briggs confronts the far-reaching impact of incarceration on Black lives.
Briggs brings a background in social justice advocacy as a former Baptist minister to inform his work, realizing the inherent physicality of clay and its expressive potential. In view of the fact that disproportionately Black Americans populate our prisons, his sculptures are an attempt to uncover the wider impact of incarceration that deeply damages not only those imprisoned, but also their families, and the ability of both to participate in a democratic life after incarceration.
