The piece is meant to invoke the feeling of discovery. Just like most cultures on the surface, it can look like a confusing mess. However, when a closer look is taken, it can create a beautiful picture. Everyone will notice something different about it first. It might be the hand, it might be the city, or the crystals, cubes, or any of the other segments.

My piece was inspired by the recent flourish in our society’s mindset. The diversity within cultures, races, and ethnicities are becoming a proudly celebrated factor of normality. This homage of colored pencil and chalk pastel displays a plethora of stems shooting upward from inside parted lips. Between each stalk peers the eyes of dissimilar backgrounds. From said stalks bloom flowers and vegetation of the Earth’s climates and countries. This pictorial representation reflects how the conversation of diversity between beings play to a positive cause.

My artwork is portraying the way diversity in Nashua holds up our community. When looking at the piece there is a black and white photo of downtown being held by the hands of people in our community. This piece displays our diversity and now that brings us together as a community. Without the hands, holding up the photo it would just fall just like how we need every member in our community to make up Nashua. These hands build and hold Nashua together.

As an artist, I tend to create works of art that show how time has a major influence in our world. As night may be on one side of earth, daylight will cover the other side. Even though we share the same planet, our time is different. It is incredible how we can have two cycles at the same time. This infinite cycle will go on forever bringing people together.
