Dominique Schmidt: “Resilience”
Stetson University

Bachelor of Arts Degree in Digital Arts (2018)
Ethan F. Greene Award Recipient 2018

“Resilience is a feminine black figure who physically confronts the notion that there is nothing wrong, and that what society holds for the oppressed is not something felt every day. Each pose shows a struggle to escape, and yet there is no resolution. The mask is hard to see through, and the ropes constrict with each movement made. Martin Luther King Jr said, “Discrimination is a hellhound that gnaws at Negroes in every waking moment of their lives to remind them that the lie of their inferiority is accepted as truth in the society dominating them.” Those who experience discrimination may not feel that they can be free of those restraints, and I question whether society would bother to see that.”
