Black Girl with a Pearl Earring
My ART4FREEDOM is a cover of Johannes Vermeer's painting « Girl with a pearl earring ». I recreated it by repainting it with a black woman. The look of the girl is very deep and quite sad, and it illustrates my thoughts quite well. She is looking right at the audience and many people think that she was interrupted while she was doing something.
On my own version of the painting, I wanted to illustrate that a colored person can be killed or injured more easily than another one. We can read the worry in her eyes, to belong to a minority and to suffer from the rooted racism in the society.
By that, I wanted to represent the fact that being part of a minority does not guarantee your security and that you can have more chances to be assaulted than the others. On my works, I represent black people but this fits on every person, who suffers from discrimination or racism. So I can say that this artwork is related to freedom because, behind the face of this girl, there is a strong fight for equality which is not finished yet. IAM4FREEDOM!
