24" x 30" acrylic on stretched canvas. At first glance this painting appears to be a woman, sleeping and dreaming in a forest setting. Briar Rose is the name of Sleeping Beauty. This painting is called Briar Never Rose. In this context, it brings to mind black, female victims like Brionna Taylor who was killed by police while sleeping in her bed. In the Black Lives Matter movement, we have chanted the names of male victims, but the names of female victims are largely ignored. Say their names: Tanesha Anderson, Miriam Carey, Yvette Smith, Natasha McKenna, Rekia Boyd....In a larger context, this painting also serves as a reminder of all forms of violence against women, particularly women of color, that goes unpunished in our courts.
