“Gullah Me” is a collection of multidimensional portraits created by Post Gullah art, Afrosurreal, Afrofuturist and techspressionist artist, Verneda Lights. The collection consists of portraits of Verneda Lights and her family members, created during the time when she was working as a family caregiver for her nonagenarian parents and younger brother. The portraits tell the story of the family members’ and the artist’s internal and externally visible journeys, as they struggled to live, age in place, and die with grace. The portraits and their stories were rendered within the context of their lives as members of the Gullah community of the South Carolina Lowcountry. The project was executed using digital tools for the creation of fine art. Verneda had a dual purpose in the creating “Gullah Me:” stress management (“Art is a medicine and medicine is an art), and documentation of her family’s journey to serve as future instruction for younger family members.
