block print on newspaper; 10×10”, image 6×6″

“’Enough Is Enough’ is inspired by the long-term injustice and violence against minorities in America. The newspaper background is a reminder of all the violence and injustices that happen daily throughout the world. The black block print that lays on top represents unjust treatment and inequality; it is meant to call attention to the rights of minorities. The accompanying all capital word of ‘ENOUGH’ is the point blank sentence that mirrors no tolerance for discriminatory behavior. My piece is dedicated to all the people who fight back for their rights and the many who show the strength of underrepresented people.”
