Acrylic on Canvas | 16 X 20 inches
The Black Lives Matter movement inspired this meaningful piece of connection, balance, and harmony. My goal in using different complexions, meeting to create a united fist, is to send a message of power, as well as beauty. Only, with each hand supporting the other, can a strong and steadfast central presence be maintained.
I am a Rochester, MN native, now residing in Bloomington, MN. I am a full-time college student at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul and will be graduating with a bachelor’s degree in studio arts and psychology at the end of this semester! I am an advocate for the environment, mental health awareness, social equality, and racial justice, all of which inspire me and are themes frequently incorporated into my artwork.
