Through diverse modes that include, performance, video, photography, and writing, Jibade-Khalil Huffman uses language, text, and image as a way to tell stories and convey meaning. The artist resists the distillation of his work down to one or two themes, but claims that his work often contains humor and contradiction in order to accurately emulate life’s complexities. Huffman achieves this through an experimentation with and the layering of materials, often projecting continuously looped video onto semi-transparent photographic collage and sculptural elements.
