Equality / by timothy brooks

So I've been busy this summer working on my new solo exhibition called "From Within" opening October 6th 2017 at the Main Street Gallery in Buffalo NY.  This is one of my favorite pieces in the exhibition.  I call it Equality because although each bar is different, overall they are the same. 

It has been a crazy sad summer watching the US return to hate.  I know it has always been there but to see it so blatantly displayed is heartbreaking.  Things like love, hate, arrogance or compassion are not limited to or enhanced by the color of our skin.  Internal desires fusing with external experiences formed who we are as humans..  External forces cannot always be predicted, but we can choose how to engage the moment.
