Old painting, new wheatpaste.
In 2011, I began a series of paintings called Victim of American Fear.(The title is from this article by Adam Serwer for The Prospect. As an illustrator, I’m often inspired to create a painting from something I’ve read.)
The series was meant to address the killings of black people that happen when people find themselves afraid of black people just because they are black. Think Trayvon Martin. Think Oscar Grant.
Also think Renisha McBride. If I continue this series, I’ll want to include a black woman.
After the recent killings of more black bodies, I decided to try these paintings out on the street as wheatpastes.
Critiquing my own work, I do think these paintings are a little over-literal, with the gun targets covering the bodies. I don’t mean to be provocative just for the sake of it. But I do think it’s a strong image.
These are pasted in Newark.
