As I go through life, everything that emotionally speaks to me is essentially my motivation. I often feel so empowered by these emotions I experience, and my art is my way of translating these emotions into a visual language. My work is almost always a result of something that has been influential within my life, from a powerful song to important current events. I want my work to reach people, and I want it to speak to them the way it originally spoke to me, and possibly even change their ways of life.
My two pieces that I have selected to submit are called "Speak No Evil" and "See No Evil." They are both meant to speak against white silence and acceptance of the way that their fellow humans are being treated just because of the color of their skin. We are all people, and choosing to remain complacent when our fellow humans are being oppressed by an outdated system is the essence of being a part of the problem. The background of each poster is a collection of quotes from signs of peaceful protestors who took place in the Black Lives Matter movement. This is meant to show what becomes impossible when a white person refuses to see or speak on these issues, just as the faces on each power become an obstacle in reading the messages behind them.
