Ya Levy-La’ford is an artist, educator and foremost a transporter working between the visual and our community through a wide range of mediums including paint, sculpture, installation, video and sound. La’ford is known for her site-specific installations of her bold, geometric paintings to explore themes of transformation and transcendence. She builds each work with a unique vocabulary of intersecting lines and gestural repetition that create distinctive visual impact. Her labyrinth patterns are both an exploration of self and place, as well as a reflection of her Jamaican background. Complex yet minimal, La’ford’s work emphasizes contrasts between light and dark, positive and negative space and draw connections between interconnectivity and human neutrality.
