From the artist: “A god and a deity exist within a space and place of revolution, consciousness, empowerment, and grace. He stands on the precipice of change; the blood, the people, and the land surround him. He is resolute in his conviction; a beacon of hope. Geometric shapes that are red, green, and black in the foreground enclose the figure yet leave room for transformation.” Recently, Marlon has been making digital collages and photographs from his performance series, “Passing,” in which he lies down on the ground in public, often in front of recognizable buildings or other public symbols, tossing a basketball in the air. “I use my body, a Black male body, in relationship to images of power,” Forrester said. Central to his artistic practice is his philosophy of disequilibrium and his diasporic background.
