Description of Links In The Chain IV Merchandise
I have created a series of collages honoring 21 victims of institutional violence. Using charcoal on toned paper, I create original sketches of victims of this violence. I then take three of the sketches of the victims, print them out in different colors, cut them into strips, and create a collage.
There is a special intensity in working on this series. I try to honor the lives of these men and women, not just their deaths. I am donating 30% of my profits to non-profit organizations that help support the people of color both locally and nationally. I hope that by supporting these organizations, I can help break the chain of repression and help the city, and the country, move forward into a time of respect and honoring all heritages.
This piece includes drawings of Tamir Rice, Atatiana Jefferson, and Philando Castile.
