2021 Youth Art Gallery
Social justice art is art with a message. The idea behind this art form is to make the audience more aware of an issue and, ideally, react in a way that motivates them to either learn more or become mobilized in a positive effort towards the message behind the art.
You guys mentioned assault, abuse and so reminded me of emotional abuse. So I made a piece about it.
it’s foggy there is
Beware of how dark emotional abuse is
Don’t accept negativity.”
My piece resembles someone in the middle of being exploited. The colors could be what the figures see, how they are feeling, or their personalities depending on how it’s viewed. With the typical combination of blue signaling “good” and red being “bad”. The blue and red are the same brightness and size, so one doesn’t jump out more. The figures are the same size and androgynous, so it could be anyone. The exploiter is in a neutral pose and casually holding the invisible string to not be obvious, the exploited is reaching towards something they see in a relaxed pose not able to feel the string or trap.
