“You Don’t Recognize the Bodies in the Water”

“You Don’t Recognize the Bodies in the Water”

2023, Acrylic on Canvas, 36” x 24”

In this acrylic painting, I confront the harrowing narratives that delve into the historical depths of the Atlantic slave trade. The stirred waters, tumultuous yet reflective, serve as a metaphor for the profound impact of this dark chapter in human history. The reflection of a ship becomes a haunting reminder of the vessels that carried the weight of human suffering. The depiction of people drowning amidst tumultuous waves serves as a visceral representation of the anguish and despair endured by those subjected to the brutality of forced migration. The muted color palette reflects the somber tone of the subject matter, inviting viewers to confront the profound impact of this historical atrocity.
