Original Mixed Media Artwork on Canvas



Berth-her " is a new body of work I am processing for an upcoming solo exhibition in March of  2022. The series is giving life, voice, and stories to the silenced voices of women and girls of color. An artist's duty is to tell the times. I made a decision that no one can keep me from telling my story or theirs. We must speak as women and artists so we do not remain unheard, unknown, and unseen. The series pays homage to all women of color, African American, Asian, Indian and Hispanic. As an Afro-Cuban /Filipino artist I make sure to celebrate and honor all that I am in my work. 

The woman and girls in the series have been crowned with found necklaces, placed on 24 Karat gold, and adorned with vintage fabrics. 

 

No one ever tells us how to survive as Black women. Black women are a threat at every point on the map. Black women are love in its purest form, all unapologetic, all unconditional. 

 

 Black women are always compassionate, too forgiving, and never afraid to show up. Black women are gorgeous even through the suffering. Black women are everything they told us we couldn't and wouldn't be. Black women hold the world together and are the strongest form of a human.  

Danielle Scott is a mixed-media assemblage artist who grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey. Her work expresses politically and socially charged messaging. She recently received the 2021 Artist of the Year from ESKFF and was featured in the 2021 Essence Magazine as on of the top LGBTQ artist to look out for. A soft-spoken artist, Danielle has begun to use her art as a conduit to explore bold; fearless, thought-provoking work -- work which draws its inspiration largely from her own journey and life experience. She creates using photo montage, found objects, paint, raw materials, old books and collage. Danielle’s artistic offerings aim to arrest the viewer and transport them away from the pretentious and into a realm rooted in truth.
