Pose At The End
This composition is an imitation of the numerous facets of Halifax's North End culture. This picture depicts daring, beauty, tenacity, and diversity. The people of the North End come to mind when I think of this quality and the girl illustrates it. The uniqueness of Africville descendants and other People of Color who have overcome hardship and fused cultures to create a new sense of community is represented by the unique style of the artwork.
The piece shows a black woman of Africville descent posing. The fore image of the character presents her in her afro showing pride in her heritage and a colourful abstract of clothing and appearance representing the bright future, uniqueness and identity of the North End. This is contrasted by the dark black background representing the turmoil and tragedy of the North End history.
