Indicate Race/Ethnicity


2015 Acrylic on wood 15x16

Acrylic on wood

This idea came after watching a clip of one notorious movie called SAW 3D(even though I hate horror movies I still can’t help being curious about it.  But sometimes I do find some good ideas there, no matter how disturbing.  And I think I only chose to watch this one particular clip because it features the LINKIN Park’s frontman Chester Bennington):



There was a particular line from this scene that struck me and inspired the work above, as Jigsaw says to his victims:

You, your girlfriend and your friends are all RACISTS. You have intimidated others based on their physical differences, but today, it is YOU who will run scared…You judged others by the color of their skin. And today, you will learn that we are all the same color on the inside.

As the saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.  Likewise, never judge a person by their skin.  Deep inside, physically, we all have the same organs, flesh, and bone structures.

So, any questions??

Whatcha Think?
