Twilight Gallery says
Anastacia-Renee’s work is a trellis of twilight, ultramarine ache and lowercase loam. In this work Anastasia plays with absurdity, surrealism, sarcasm and truth as an attempt to peel back systemic and personal layers.

As a queer super woman of color (cape & wings), she often artistically unravels rough edges, shapes, societies obsession/dissection/possession of the body and the ways women of color have been HERSTORICALLY plagued with commercialized, systemic, patriarchal and racial PTSD as a way to get strangers to dialog about the idea of legacy, baggage and renewal. She believes the body holds memories (from the past) that the mind cannot fully process. as well as intuitive memories (from the future) which have not happened, but the body needs to process. The combination of the two plus present day trauma pushes her desire to provide a thoroughfare for those memories in any interdisciplinary avenue they wish to embody. She encourages onlookers and audience members to interact/react and become proactive participants in/with her installation.
