Give Her Flowers

Jasmine-Nicole Amoako

“This painting was created because of my love for flowers. I love flowers because they symbolize new beginnings, and they are a beautiful pop of color in any space. And, in my artwork, I like to intertwine elements of nature with my depictions of Black womanhood, to emphasize the inherent connection between humanity and the natural environment,” she says. “In my work, in general, I like to inspire dialogue and challenge stereotypical perceptions of the Black community. I also like to foster greater understanding and appreciation of the diverse experiences and narratives within the Black community. And so, I think that is what I was going for putting up this piece: To add that vibrancy, and the joy, and showcasing that interaction with nature as well.”
