Whites and “Others” Series

I began this series some time ago as a raw reaction to racism, colonialism, religion, and society. I did not want to censor myself in any way and therefore the imagery and subject matter may be offensive to some viewers. My purpose, however, was to depict in a simple manner the impact Western powers have had on Non-Western (or Non-White) people around the world. I chose to use dark humor, because it is something minorities often have to use to deal with the horrific occurrences in their lives and to their ancestors.

White culture is depicted by triangular forms, based on Catholic Nazareno costumes, and every “other” culture is depicted by long-haired forms, based on African and Indian tribal costumes.
