The Road Ahead by Cory Van Lew

Artist Statement

Title: The Road Ahead

Year: 1990

A shadow casted by ignorance, it fades as we move further from the past. For too long women have had to fight to be on a level playing field with man. Shining light on the queens of our world will help bring balance. As the black woman may have one of the hardest journeys, I tapped into one of my favorite muses, “Kilo”. This is me literally shining light on a woman that deserves to have the light shined on her as much as any man in this world.
