Stereotyped Lenses

2018; Oil Paint; 36 x 48. Portrait intended to depict racism. The transparency of the shirt represents how society tends to ignore the true value / nature of an individual in preference for stereotypes. The grid lines further accentuate the ways in which African Americans are often categorized. The Raised Fist is a symbol of solidarity. Background (white skin) represents inescapable white culture. Lastly, the hands held behind the back are symbolic of the silencing of African American speech.
