Festive Indifference

Acrylic by Derek Moore

The work illustrates the African American experience through relationships...layers of pleasure and pain often dismissed as insignificant...timeless and multidimensional. The blue symbolizes expanse and opportunity. The yellow symbolizes the spirits of those who’ve gone before us. The white symbolizes the constraints of void and lack. The red symbolizes pain in the midst of life. The entire work seeks to convey motion and energy while the circular orientation of the people denotes adaptation and evolution.

The Generational Curse

 Acrylic by Derek Moore

Three hands of innocence pierced by the limitations and decisions of a preceding generation…not condemned but predisposed to repeat the errors of old. The hands are surrounded by deep wounds of compromise and regret…A needless injury with inexplicable shape. The dark tone of the work symbolizes the difficulty of A choice to improve self and one’s environment. We all have a choice to break the curses…we can all make a change…we can all make a difference.
