Featured Image: EVERY MISSION IS A JOURNEY “Draped in my Japanese kimono, I take my usual kit with me: a spearhead, just in case I need to defend myself; my camera, for documenting the journey; the odd glasses I found that help me spot locations for exploration from afar; and my mask. My contact at the African Assembly told me it was worn once by the Dogon people of Mali. I’m grateful for this connection to the past—it keeps me focused on my purpose.” Drawing, “On a Mission,” 2020; Oasa DuVerney; Ink on paper; 10 x 13 in.; Courtesy of the artist.
