Artist Statement: Jahniah Kum is a interdisciplinary fine artist working in Albany, New York. She focuses on community and intimacy throughout her work. Although paint and photography are her mediums, the majority of her compositions are pulled from her photography which she morphs and deconstructs within other mediums. For this exhibition, Windows, she critiques the pain and reaction of her community towards the spike of violence that occurred throughout the United States summer of 2020. Windows is the beginning of a conversation about justice and freedom.
