The figure is constructed through visualization.  I purposefully manipulate the anatomy, adding to the feelings of vulnerability and strength.  I am taking liberties with the perspective causing the picture plane to feel skewed and unbalanced.  The manipulation of space forces this image to take on symbolic truth, meaning brushwork, line , composition and representative imagery now constitute formal metaphors for my experiences and events of the Black Lives Matter movement.
