Artist’s Statement: We’re used to accepting the status quo on how we mistreat women and people of color. By showing that every one of us has opposite sides within us, we can appreciate the differences as strengths instead of treating people as less than and break away from just “learning to live with it”. The history of zombies originated with people of color but it’s been downgraded as a topic so much that not many know this. They were seen as lesser or different even though they were just normal people like everyone else. This can compare to women in the world. Women have also always been seen as lower than others and even different as well. Both of these have grown into big topics around the world and they’re both something people share very different opinions about. Because of all of this, I thought these two topics went hand in hand, so I chose to combine them to show the similarities between people of color and women in the world. Everyone has different sides to them so why should it be called out if, in the end, everyone’s the same? But everyone has an opinion, so what’s yours?
