Stop Hate

Saddened by the increase in violence against Asians and Asian-Americans as a scapegoat for the COVID-19 pandemic, Debra wanted to portray the anxiety, fear and stress that insidious and targeted hate can impose. Hate in any form affects all of us regardless of whether it is from personal experience or from distant events reported in the news.

We Are Individuals, Not a Sterotype

⁠The duality of Asian stereotypes -- the successful, hardworking and harmony-seeking "Model Minority," a myth that often renders Asians invisible during economic prosperity but changes to "Yellow Peril" as a scapegoat for economic hardship. This pattern in U.S. history continues during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fueled by former President Trump's coronavirus rhetoric, anti-Asian hate incidents have increased dramatically and continues to rise.

Why Perpetual Foreigners?

Anti-Asian hate began in the mid-19th Century when white workers' frustration with economic distress, labor market uncertainty, and capitalist exploitation turned into anti-Chinese sentiment and racist attacks against the Chinese. The Chinese were racialized as the inferior, alien and the unassimilated "other" -- perpetual foreigners. Now in the 21st Century -- more than 170 years later -- COVID-19 has driven racism and violence against Asian-Americans again as scapegoats for the coronavirus pandemic. When will Asian-Americans be accepted fully as Americans? Asian-Americans are Americans!

Blocks on Blocks

For a study in using one shape and a combination of color saturations, I began with threads in a narrow value range but with hue and saturation broadly represented. I was unhappy with the overall effect as being flat and the center right-angled shape was too much of a focus. So I repeated the same right-angled shape in a darker value thread. This added more depth and movement for a harmonious and balanced composition.
