Delany Jackson is a multidisciplinary artist whose work focuses on creating self-affirming depictions of black women embracing their features surrounded in surreal flora environments through embroidery and a range of paint mediums. With the combination of African pre-colonial braiding and hairdressing and modern-day styling of black hair, her work speaks to the displacement of the ancestors of the black Americans, who were stripped from theirs lands, culture, and religion, forced to assimilate into western society by creating a new culture and a sense of belonging in a foreign land. Embroidery is an essential aspect of Jackson's art practice and a craft that was passed down by her grandmother. She can recall memories of being in her grandmother's studio, fascinated by all the materials and linens, hoping that one day she would be a skillful embroiderer and seamstress like her.
