What we love
Based on the first time Nzinga went golfing, T-Time explores Black experience in traditionally white sports. Nzinga had never golfed before, and arrived at the course wearing Timberland boots and regular clothes. After being jeered at by the other golfers, he quickly impressed them with his natural skill. The VW Golf Rallye depicted in the painting is a fast, all-terrain vehicle, acting as a metaphor for rapid adaptation and risk-taking. Growing up in poverty requires agile movement like a VW Golf: the ability to adapt swiftly to unfamiliar circumstances, just like Nzinga at the golf course.
