Let My People Go

Chakila Hoskins's avatar Chakila Hoskins

The term "bondage" is to be restrained or held in restraint. It can also be used symbolically for spiritual connection. My work is a 4ft x5ft 2-d black and white painting meant to reach out to all peoples. A story is being told, a story of FREEDOM. All figures in the painting have their backs to the viewer in order to invite the viewer into the picture plane, as to become a part of it. The black and white add to the drama of the concept. To be freed from bondage is the goal of many. “Let My People Go.”
