Acrylic and ink on poster board


20” x 30”




This work was created in my apartment in Brooklyn as the nation erupted in social uprising, amidst a pandemic. The series of riots and protests sparked across the nation, and around the world, were prompted by cases of terrible, racist police brutality. Being able to see myself and people I know within the horrors reported positioned me to voice the injustices felt by myself and my community. My use of poster board is cognizant of picketing - a peaceful form of protest. Referencing my own body, I offer a pose of both surrender and resistance. The focal figure’s identity is reduced to a bare minimum by layers of paint so that its only semblance is of a black person seriously asking, Can I live?
