Race | 202l-Race_Final---2529.jpg
20x25, 2020 $1685. Mixed Media Painting I created this painting to generate a conversation about race and the words that are used to define us. It is about having pride in one's lineage. The background texture and rolled paper hair are made from torn pieces of a vintage dictionary, a nod to words that are used to describe people of color when the book was published. The title was inspired by a vintage photo of race cars that make up part of his face.
