Regular price
Unit price

24inx30in oil on canvas. 

This work pays homage to Frederick Douglass, a towering figure in American history and a beacon of hope and resilience. Douglass, born into slavery in 1818, rose through immense adversity to become one of the most influential abolitionists, writers, and orators of the 19th century. His eloquence and relentless pursuit of justice helped shape the national conversation about slavery and human rights.

In "Vision and Eloquence," I sought to capture not just the likeness but the spirit of Frederick Douglass. His legacy as the most photographed person of his time inspired me deeply. Douglass understood the power of imagery and used photography as a tool to challenge the dehumanizing stereotypes of Black people prevalent in his era. He believed in the potential of every individual to incite change and used every medium available to him to fight for freedom and equality.

In this painting, Douglass is depicted with a gaze that is both reflective and forward-looking, embodying his wisdom, dignity, and vision for a future where all people could live in liberty and peace.  It's a tribute to his enduring legacy and a reminder of the power we all hold to make a difference in our world.

This piece invites viewers to connect with the past while pondering its relevance in our present and future. This artwork means embracing the spirit of a man who believed in the power of words and action to change the world, inspiring us to continue that legacy in our own lives.
