“No Strings Attached” is a micro-examination of systematic control. Mechanisms such as: tethering, bindings, trusses, and all constructs that joins or is fixed in their inaction to hold in place.

Delusions of Grandeur is a collective of five artists currently living in the DC Metropolitan area, working together to bolster our careers and shine a light on the happenings of the DC art scene. Named aptly for our dedication to our craft and the delusions artists must possess in order to continue progressing in their artwork and careers; the act of being defined on one’s own terms. Amber Robles-Gordon, Stan Squirewell, Jamea Richmond-Edwards, Shaunté Gates, Wesley Clark, and we are Delusions of Grandeur.
