30x40, Mixed Media Painting, 2020, $1675 I wanted this painting to make a statement about the subjugation of black Americans throughout history. Vintage tintype portraits at the lower right of her dress suggest a relationship to the woman, with one green eye. With pen in hand she looks to rewrite her history. Flecks of paint dot their faces and her arm. Their lives a part of white America and those that dismiss their civil rights. The white area of the painting has been scarred with sharp objects - my reaction to the long simmering racial tensions and violence towards black people... that have only worsened under President Trump.
