Being Square

I am in the Be There Be Square show at the Bear and Bird Gallery, opening this weekend. All of the pieces in the show are square.

 

 

I am in the Be There Be Square show at the Bear and Bird Gallery, opening this weekend. All of the pieces in the show are square.

The piece that I entered is based on personal experiences. It is a digital print from an original marker illustration.

Mommy, I want this

 

This piece is a reflection on the fact that racism still exists in today’s world and the seeds of color discrimination are passed on from generation to generation. This work is inspired by my memories of kindergarten, where, one of my friends had suggested that children should only play with dolls that look like them, as in, of the same skin tone. I also noticed in numerous toy stores that even though children do not care whether a doll is black or white, their parents corrupt their innocence by insisting that they go for the white dolls.
