We all live on the same planet, but we look very different. Sometimes people can be criticized by their skin color or country they are from. People always define a person in a glance, simply through someone's appearance can be concluded that he or she has some characteristics. But in addition to skin color and language is different, everyone has their own personality, there are advantages and disadvantages. If we just see the appearance then to comment on a person is also irrational and unfair. In this theme, I represent that we have lots of differences outside but we are the same internal. First I used a pencil to draw people’s portraits, then I filled in one color for each of the portraits in the background. In the background, I use white, black, and yellow colors to represent different skin colors of people. I keep the portraits in pencil because I enjoy the original mark, and this also can indicate people are the same from inside. The white, black, yellow rose next to them also shows that rose has different color but they all rose basically. People can not change who they are, everyone is born with the color of their skin and the way they look. So never judge others by their looks, their skin color, and their nationality. We are all the same.

My theme of BS exhibition work is about the racial discrimation. I want to show that we have different appearances, and come from countries, but we can’t judge people just by these aspects. This series has three pieces of digital print art in total which are 27 inches by 20 inches for each. I used pencil to draw the three portraits, black, white and yellow women. I keep them in the original pencil mark because I want to point out that people are the same inside. And I use black, white and yellow roses to represent the same idea as the human’s portraits, even the roses’ colours are different but they all rose basically.
