"Cole’s repurposed shoe masks are visceral artworks that communicate potent and distinct messages about both discarded materials and African history. Installed in a former department store, these works take on new meaning by transforming obsolete footwear into fine art. Both a tribute to traditional art and the space’s previous use, these masks convey intuitive and unspoken narrative power." - www.culturelabwpb.com
