Finished in Black, Filled with Color


Booker T. Washington Magnet High School Visual Arts student Zoe Davis says that this piece ,a creative elixir of music and vivid colors, represents how music is all equal and has no ethnic boundaries. The work depicts a guitar with vibrant colors, similar to ones found in a radio, and finished with a charcoal outline. The colors represent equality, and the charcoal represents that there are no boundaries of ethnicity.

I asked Davis about her thought process, and she replied that it came from her heart and really portrayed how she felt about equality and ethnic freedom. The project took hours over the span of multiple weeks to create the very careful detail, and he felt that she even had to get the strings correct, along with the design of a guitar.

When I asked her how she felt about it, Davis said that it brings her joy to be able to express herself through art. She also believes that, when all words fail, art can fill the gap.
