Through her evocative portraits, Sherald unsettles dominant views of African American culture and history. By painting her figures’ skin in grayscale, the artist metaphorically removes their “color.”
I was drawn to this piece by the vibrant colors and important message the grayscale skintone conveys, I pulled from the pattern in the subject’s dress to create my strawberry design. I incorporated the playfulness of the berries along with the polka dots and colors.
