WHITE LIBERAL PRODUCTS

As liberals, we don’t want to acknowledge the residual bigotry inside us. We fight against the large acts of prejudice while unwittingly ignoring vestiges of racism that might be hidden in our words and actions.

My work challenges the perception that only those who have suffered from acts of racism can make art about prejudice. As a society, we are all affected by racism. Since I historically belong to the white oppressor group, I believe it is my obligation to address issues of bigotry. I would like to promote a discussion about the work we need to do to eliminate racism.

To represent the type of unwittingly bigoted statements that liberals may make, I use commercial companies to imprint objects such as t-shirts, coffee mugs, and canvas tote bags.I like the contrast of the absurdly exuberant "White Liberal" proclamations and the plain, utilitarian objects. These art objects have been shown in galleries imitating a retail store. I also photograph them in scenes with ethnic implicatons.
