At the center of Asha’s mixed media practice is the idea that spirituality is a center of healing for people of African descent. Her art practice is the amalgamation of symbols from Akan, Ifa, and Christian cosmology. These symbols are used to portray women of African descent as deities, spiritual workers, enlightenment seekers, and ancestors. Ancestor veneration and cosmograms permeate the work. The cosmograms take the form of Geometric Abstractions. They illustrate meditation, inner healing, and the visual interpretation of the universe. Various texts by African American authors and feminists fuel the work.
