Plessy vs. Ferguson, 2018 (pt. 2)

102 x 77 cm, oil on canvas

The concept I attempt to highlight in this painting is the doctrine of “Separate but Equal." Therefore, this painting is presented on two separate canvases bearing the name of the subject 1896 Supreme
Court decision. While the separate canvases themselves are presented in the same colors and styles, there are several differences in regards to substantive materials used in creating this piece including:
1) time
2) amount of paint
3) photographs
4) mixed media material
