Adrienne Wheeler’s work is informed by African ancestral and spiritual practices, primarily Bakongo, using carefully selected materials as “Nkisi” (sacred medicine) to give spiritual healing to individuals and communities. Wheeler offers her pieces as a contribution to the struggle to end oppression, injustice, and human suffering.
