This work is about the suffocation of ones historical identity and undermined child molestation.
She was painted on burnt wood, the shadows of her skin ARE the burnt wood.
TO BURN- an irreversible process. Although the object can be completely disintegrated, it can also stay whole, but will always bare a... scar...A memory... A HISTORY.
You could find this piece questioning the births/influences of certain religions. What inspired the religion, and how the religion was used beneficially. Depicting some of these aspects, from the engulfment and suffocation of 'white supremacy'.
How the ankh from Africa symbolising life: a 2 piece symbol, the top - the womb of the woman, the bottom -the staff of the man. Both creating life.
Has this symbol been taken and changed? - if so, does it symbolise life.. or death... and does it still incorporate the womb-man? - if not, why was it altered? - power? ... Part of the experience is to find a relation between yourself and the painting.
