This is an archival matte print of my original painting, "Doll Time" It is 8 x 12 inches with an 1/2" extra border added around this size. This is for the print only. Doll Time Description:The chaos of 2020 can be highlighted through many social, political, and health crises. I aim to distill this chaos by highlighting these events in painting during a time when media (visual and verbal) tends to negate the actuality or seriousness of these events. The systemically racist and inequitable roots of these events become evident as I create these paintings distinctly from my perspective as an African-American. Within this portfolio, I’m highlighting our interconnected, contemporary reality with these significant events. In the western canon African-Americans often have to deal with adversity as a result of our displacement. In “Doll Time” I aim to highlight police brutality with this perverse intrusion of space and injustice toward the vulnerable. This is to show the longstanding nature and intensity of our displacement and otherness.
