Not so Black by Spriha Gupta
Medium: mixed media
Dimensions: 12 x 24 inches
Artist Statement: There is hope. Not everything in life is Black and White.I have used burlap, wood, handmade paper and jute to put this piece together. Its very tactile and layered. Who said living life with its experiences had to be labeled under one color. We experience a myriad of emotions which are married into the color wheel when we express ourselves. There are in-betweens...like the grays in the black and whites of our lives. Lets be open to allow the grays, the in-betweens in life and not be so hard on ourselves.
Artist Connection to the theme: This piece is about inclusivity...about facing similar challenges in our day to day life without being slammed by our skin color. Nothing is ever permanent and society needs to be ever-changing and accepting of all. Voices need to be heard and words need to be spoken and people need to listen up. The textures and unevenness of this piece reflects on the challenges we face on so many fronts nothing is ever black and white.
