That my skin was DIFFERENT from theirs and theirs from mine meant nothing to us kids. Later I learned that for some people it meant everything.

Artist Statement

My mixed media piece consists of an oil painting on two panels, representing that we are individuals. Parts of an antique map were collaged inthe background and stained. I also used chicken wire to represent fences, or barriers, that we must tear down. Metal flashing and wire were used to form the shackles. “One” shows that we are all unique individuals joined together in the this world as one human race.
