"We Are Tired"
We are tired was a painting created during the BLM protests all around the world and constant killings of Black Americans in 2020. Although the fight we fight is nothing new it had really taken a toll. This piece was a very emotional one even in its simplicity it says all it needs to say about how I know many of us were feeling. The tears that hit my cheeks as I threw the red paint on this intentionally black canvas came from a place of pain and exhaustion that so many of us felt during that time and then on. “We are fucking tired.” We can’t wake up and decide being black is too hard so let’s not do it today! This is an everyday fight and we are tired!!! I love every single thing about being black and it’s too bad for anybody that doesn’t love the golden greatness that we are!”
