There Are No Races KAYLA STEELE | ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
This project was meant to evoke the feeling that there is no such thing as “races." With all the recent events in Ferguson and other similar cases, I wanted to
create a project that shows that no one should be considered a different group solely by the genes they show. No assumptions should be made, as there are
no differences that actually separate us into another race. I tried to make the woman depicted in the painting seem as though she was created with puzzle
pieces that each fit together to make a whole person, and without one it would possibly collapse. I painted her a cloudy eye to show blindness, the idea
being to mimic the symbol of justice, and to show that we should never see color on a person as a way of determining who they are as individuals.
