CES - India '18

The Black Reality of Single Parent Homes
“How can I represent the struggles of black families through my paintings?” This is the essential question India chose to explore in her CES project. Research and reflection resulted in India creating a triptych of paintings to represent the absence of male role models in black families and how this absence impacts family unity. Her paintings depict life-sized portraits of a mother and her child, a teenage boy, and a younger boy.
