Untitled by Ciana Pullen

Painting of a white woman sitting on a chair, loose realistic style.
Untitled, by Ciana Pullen, 2013. Acrylic on paper.
This is from a series where I identified subtle visual ways in which the media portrays people by race and gender (limited to Black and White, male and female), and then "swapped" them for the race and gender of the imaginary subject. For instance, common poses, lighting, background colors, angles, and mood.
