Mixed Media on Canvas, 2014-2015
The THREAT series began its creation in August of 2014. The series was a direct response to the array of emotions I was experiencing following the murder of a 18 year-old black man named Michael Brown on August 9, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown was fatally shot, while unarmed, by a white Ferguson police officer.
This series was inspired by the beauty and power of black people in contrast to the black experience in America.
