Artist Statement

 

This Social Justice series is dedicated to those who have been victimized by the powers that be.

I will not only delve into those forgotten, heroic figures who were terrorized in the past but those historically significant people who made a difference in the Civil Rights movement throughout our nation’s history.

The metaphor of using TV’s as a backdrop is with the hope that the media will literally honor and bring awareness to those marginalized citizens who deserve to have their names said. Memorializing them will hopefully endow these citizens with a measure of respect they were not afforded in life.

A Portion of each piece sold  in this series will go to the Richmond, Va.chapter of the Black Lives Matter organization.
