AMBIVALENCE : The coexistence of opposing attitudes or feelings, such as love and hate, toward a person, object, or idea. I put myself in conversation with the flag, with the context of my HISTORY. There is a history in this country my skin has been seen as dirty, my beauty cheap and base arousing only sensual desire. I ASSERT that I AM pure in MY SKIN, my nakedness, my beauty. I will STILL be OFFENSIVE to some and in my modesty i cover that which is most precious. Do u see birds hiding there beauty, are the flowers ashamed of there splendor. Neither am I. I AM AFRIKA the GREAT and AMERICA the BEAUTIFUL ♥ NISH

Tanisha Lynn Pyron aka (PRETTYFIRE)

ACTRESS / COMMERCIAL MODEL/ CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHER/ VISUAL GRIOT/ POET/ DIRECTOR/ PRODUCER / REVOLUTIONARY ARTIST and media entrepreneur currently working on her MFA in acting and launching PRETTY FIRE as a media brand. The young artist considers herself to be a modern day griot focusing on telling stories that redefine and re-appropriate “BLACK AMERICANA” highlighting and finding the beauty in the contradictions, pain and pride within “our stories” and thus hoping to discover and re-claim the beauty within her own. She has used her ACTING, POETRY, dance and movement and now photography as modalities for making sure her creative vision and voice are seen, heard and felt. In her own words Tanisha expresses, “To me the art and the artist are one. As I seek to unlock and express what is contained in my own heart and to heal and celebrate my own beauty and spirit. The art will speak to who it needs to. “

    This really resonated wit me.
    “… before your consciousness was invaded by Black” … I call it my “black filter” and from time to time I reflect on how it came to be and why it’s necessary. Many of my experiences and actions get passed though this filter. I largely regard it as a self-defense mechanism (for the mind). If you encounter a racist situation, the event get pre-processed by the ‘black filter’ and it lets your brain know the real deal. Without it … I’m afraid my brain might just break! 🙁
