About The Artwork

This painting is inspired by Zora Neale Hurston’s 1928 essay, “How it feels to be Colored Me,” which illustrates the experience of having grown up in an environment and culture influenced by one specific set of values and norms, in my case, Jamaica, which has 90% black population, and later, experiencing a transitional phase in order to assimilate into a completely different demographic and culture - the United States, especially where race is concerned.
