Honfleur Gallery is pleased to present French Doors, a never before seen show by influential artist and educator, Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter. Gibson-Hunter has worked and exhibited in Washington, DC for over 25 years and is one of the founding members of Black Artists DC.

In this series, Gibson-Hunter questions the implication of opulence in Parisian architecture with large-scale mixed media works. The artist juxtaposes the ornate doors prevalent in Paris against West African patterns. The resulting works explore wealth, power, and exploitation in relationship to personal and national sovereignty.
