A Storm is Coming

Carl E. Moore

2020

Acrylic on Canvas

The man in the foreground rests his forehead on his hand and braces the weight of his body against a doorframe. His expression is one of concern and worry. The woman in the background sits on a sofa chair and reads a magazine with the cover title "A Storm is Coming". In this painting, Carl E. Moore presents a multi-layered interpretation of the metaphorical storms experienced by Black Americans in 2020. Our Nation's underlying structures of inequity and inequality fueled the disproportionate impact of the pandemic on Black Americans. This impact generated anxiety and financial instability that was only further compounded by intersecting civil unrest.
