Beverly McIver – Washing Dishes
Dimensions: 25 x 31″ framed / 24 x 30″ unframed
Medium: oil on canvas
In 1997-1998, Beverly McIver created a series of paintings refered to as Loving in Black and White. At the time, she was in relationship with a white man named David, and as the relationship evolved, she felt more and more estranged. She realized that while he, as a white man, felt very much at home in his own persona, she, as a black woman, felt trapped within the stereotypes associated with black women through the ages.
