"'Codeswitchonya' is a repurposed play on OutKast’s 'Stankonia' album cover. While this piece directly pays homage to my favorite hip hop group of all time, it speaks on a much larger issue. The subject in this piece is one woman painted wearing different garments with very different hair. It’s highlighting the fact that most people 'code switch' but black women in this society and beyond have to do it the most. We are constantly in the act of making those around us 'comfortable.' Be it our looks, hair, tone of voice, subtle actions or aggressive actions, we are seldom accepted as our true selves." - Sydney G. James
