But My Best Friend is an Alien

2012

24×48
oil on canvas

This piece was inspired the concept of someone feeling like “other” or marginalized in the midst of possibly well meaning but still thoughtless folk. There are many people from different communities who have felt that they were being included to exist as a prop or to check off someone diversity checklist. I wanted to illustrate the strain we who find ourselves in the position going through life and the feeling that we are not heard.
