94. Simone Monique Barnes — Black Archetypes / Read 'Em and Weep

Collage, painting, mixed media

I began the Black Archetype and Read 'Em and Weep series as a way to process, heal, and document my pain related to the loss of figures who are symbolic of the people in my neighborhood. It is a conversation to reshape the narrative of the negative, skewed tropes in the media to the realistic archetypes in my community.
