I Have A Dream (Martin Luther King) - Original

  • This piece is perfect to showcase my affiliation towards the interaction between darkness and light, hope that fights against the depths of despair, good versus evil. I have captured the very essence of what this famous preacher was about and stood for in contrast with the raw evil and brutality that he stood up to and fought and that ultimately he fell victim to. This is all summed up perfectly with the following quote - 'Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that’. Darkness that creeps and builds, trying to encroach and overcome the light, this plays out on the canvas through intense embellishments with a wide range of textures and techniques that bring the canvas and the battles to life, dominated by his figure that overpowers the shadows that surround him, those that lurk in the background. Patches of intense, claustrophobic black exist alongside beautiful detailing of light that doesn’t hide away from the darkness but that embraces the sense of hope that you can’t live without.
