Women of Color
28.5 in(55 cm x 72 cm)
The indigenous people of Oceania migrated from Africa, various parts of Asia, Spain, Britain, and South America, based on migration research going back over 50,000 years. Certainly, this created not only a diversity of race and physical attributes, but also a melding of customs, traditions, and familial expectations. This work reflects on female faces from vintage post cards, taken over a century ago, which may seem initially to be unrelated. Yet, over time, these individual ethnic traits and striking physical attributes intermingled, and represent the ancestral heritage of women who now inhabit the varied, and dynamically distinct areas of Oceania.
