"Hold(2020)"

Justice. It's probably the most quoted word since George Floyd's death. Throughout history, humanity was constantly divided and hurt by color of skin, cultural, and political differences.

In this series of work, "Hold(2020)" I’m conveying a positive message of connection, unity, and healing during this dark time. Holding hands is a powerful and delicate act. If either hand loses power, it loses balance. In doing so, we must constantly hold on to each other, educate and wake up. Through the strong association and holding of hands of different races, visualizing the justice in a society that we have to be created through the lense of visual language.
