P.S. I Love You is an ongoing series made from found postcards that found their way around the world. They presented romanticized images of African Americans that perpetuated stereotypes of the "happy servant" in the economies of Southern plantation life. The residue of these fictions are still present today. My manipulation of these images is an attempt to rescue African American representation from this debasement. The titles of these pieces are from the original titles found on the postcards.
