A symbol of hope, the central pentagonal geometric element in this painting could be seen to represent Humankind. Split apart, seemingly separated yet touching at its highest point. Brought together by our highest ideals of unity, fairness and togetherness there is hope that we can reunite and strengthen fractured aspects of our society. This is part of my response to the social unrest, the highlighting of systemic racism, unfair treatment and separation between the treatment of whites and people of colour which has been brought to a head after the horrific killing of George Floyd. The curved, blue riverlike aspect could be seen to represent our history as it flows unrelentingly forward towards our shared future. In the words of the America author, Kekla Magoon, 'The river moves but it follows a path. When it tires of one journey, it rubs through some rock to forge a new way. Hard work, but that's its nature.' As humans, we are constantly forging new paths in our history but there are times when this forging is 'hard work', uncomfortable and even bloody. This is why hope is so important, the aspiration and yearning for change and a shared better future. With the sale of this artwork, I pledge to give 10% of the profit to the charity Amnesty International as a way to support justice and change in our society. To prove this, I will provide the purchaser with confirmation of my contribution, via email. This piece will be carefully wrapped & packaged up in a protective box before being posted off.
