I picked three colors for the ‘Black & White’ project. I used eggshells to describe life and death, also black and white. I painted the eggshells black on the outside and left the inside of the shells white. I connected the white and black sections with yellow flower petals. The yellow flowers give energy and contrast. The circle canvas frame is my Earth; covered with local spring flowers that I collected from the mountain in my neighborhood and the eggshells from my daily meals. We (Black, White, Yellow, and more) are here to make one voice in unity.
My piece ‘Break Glazed Bread’ isn’t my regular meal. It is my wish; the continuation of my first work, My Earth. I prepared two donuts coated with black, white, and yellow-gold eggshells. Since breakfast is important to start the day, I used organic charcoal, white, and golden-baked eggs from a local farmer. I broke the shells to decorate these special breakfast donuts and share them with everyone. I wish we could all break bread together and enjoy this piece in unity.
I made the word ‘Whiteblack’ meaning we all are one. There is no fighting, only peace.
I used contrast to highlight the equality of the differences. The letters are located on the bottom like deep breathing to relax into our subconscious and exist together in peace.
