‘Invisible’ Captures The Real Faces Of Multiracial Women

Words

We introduced Samantha Wall and her sexually-charged series ‘Shame On Me’ previously on iGNANT. Now she’s back with a new series called ‘Invisible’ that was inspired by her ‘experience navigating multiraciality in Korea, and then the United States’.

She photographed and interviewed multiracial women to gather source material and to elicit an interpersonal connection during the process. Afterwards she selects an image that captures more than a portrait to draw it with graphite, charcoal or ink on paper. She states: “Through this work I am exposing the plurality of emotions that sculpt human subjectivity. The drawings of these women are portals into the human psyche, a place where emotions call out and perceived racial boundaries dissolve.”
