“Hope For A Better Tomorrow”
Acrylic Paint, 9×12
Description: My art piece is about a family forced into an immigration camp where they are locked up as prisoners. As the parent is slowly losing hope, their spirit fades to a cool blue but their children’s’ warmth gives them strength to continue the fight for their human rights and their future. It is important to see these family units as people and not as the derogatory labels as illegal aliens.
