Trouble Sleeping, 2021





Qualeasha Wood’s work spans sculptural, textile, and digital media and suggests realities around living in the black female body that do and might exist. Wood utilizes a range of traditional craft and contemporary digital materials to create intricate dialogues across time, and present novel perspectives on the relationship between the avatar and the self.
