A Story of Color
In art school, one of the first exercises we do in drawing 101 is to draw a white scene. This is to teach us how to look at lighting/proportions/rendering. But since then, there’s always been something surreal to me about coming across a scene covered in white. I think this is because it almost never happens in nature, except in between those magical moments of fresh snowfall. In color theory, we are taught that when you combine all the color spectrums of visible light, you get white light. I thought this is an interesting metaphor for life as a minority in America. As people of color, we make up the structures of American society. But we still live in a white person’s world, no matter how much we stand out.
