“Balance,” is a contemporary digital illustration by DC artist, Samantha Viotty. The piece pops with bold bright colors and dynamic atypical composition. This is part of her newest series that will be a part of our online exhibition series “Voices.” The works showcase the voices of those systemically silenced and allow for space for them to say anything they want. Viotty explores further her signature color blocking pop art portraits of found images. “Deliberate and afraid of nothing” is a quote from the Black lesbian feminist theorist, Audre Lorde. This collection of work displays the beauty, strength, and diversity of Black women. In a society where Black women are often the last people considered and represented, I wanted to focus on the bodies, hair, skin tones, and complexity that Black women share with the world. The Audre Lorde serves as a lens for which to view these works and the women who exist in them. Framing options are available.

Samantha Viotty is a Washington D.C. based digital illustrator who focuses on identity and social issues in her work. Viotty’s recent illustration, Still Waiting for Justice for Breonna Taylor, places Breonna Taylor, a Black woman shot in her home by police, in a celestial setting, but suspended, and in limbo as her killers have yet been brought to justice. The imagery is serene, but the title of the work confronts the viewer, giving an immortal voice to a woman who has been eternally silenced.
