“Expressing Rightness” is inspired from the terrorist acts

in Paris. Following these terrible events: attack on Charlie

Hebdo in January 2015 and the Bataclan concert Hall during

the Spring of the same year, I created this work. I did not realize

how these events affected me until I started this piece.

As a starting point, I used drips of white, red and black

acrylic paints. My initial intent with this piece was to represent

freedom of speech and each color symbolized this.

White represents the paper onto which the writing of freedom

is done; black the ink; red the blood of martyrs that

suffered or died to express freedom. Once the drips were

completed. I noticed forms and shapes. I drew these forms

more explicitly. Most of these forms represented people,

the ghosts or unknown defenders of justice. A paint brush

and the broken pencil of Charlie hebdo appeared as well.

Then, I glued paper images of some famous defenders of

rights or justice: Martin Luther king, Nelson Mandela, and

mother Theresa. I wrote quotes from various thinkers about

justice or injustice. I glued parts of newspapers from all

over the world as symbols of freedom of speech and the

right to express what’s just. I glued ripped pieces of paper

grids to represent the oppression and prisons that many

of the defenders of justice had to face because of what

they said and where able to free themselves from. I also

glued pieces of red paper to represent the intensity these

people suffered leading eventually for some to their death.

My piece then ended up being more about expressing what’s

right rather than defending a right - freedom of speech - thus

its title “Expressing Rightness.” Art is a a mean of expressing

justice, and what’s right, as art is a representation of the soul.
