I made this piece to depict the turmoil faced in 2020, focusing on the Black Lives Matter Movement. The piece is a fist with cracks in it and a bandage wrapped around it. In this piece, I wanted to portray how many people seem to believe that problems can easily be fixed by band-aid solutions, when the actual problem (in this case institutional racism) is much deeper than that.
