"We Carry Generations" by Steve Prince
19 x 26 inches lithograph on paper, black and white limited edition trial proofs of 10, (2020)-- unframed
The image "We Carry Generations" is a tribute to the indelible spirit of African Americans making a way out of no way. The woman, who signifies the true carrier of life, carries a house atop her head with the memory of family past and present. The people move through thresholds, they make love, they tell stories on the porch, they sing a sweet serenade to the rising and setting of the sun/ "SON." The piece ultimately represents the importance of family and the power to past on the traditions to the coming generations.....Steve Prince
