“This piece was one of the first paintings I had done that brought me diving into my roots and wanting to bring back what colonization has hidden and turned sour. The markings are inspired by the history of tattoos in the Philippines. The centipede marking in the middle, with its many legs, is used to signify the many people that have come before me and walk with me. This piece was also inspired by Maya Angelou’s words on a song that she featured on called ‘The Dreamer’ by Common. In it she exclaims, “Dare to let your dreams reach beyond you… We are here alive today because our ancestors dared to dream”. I know I come from a product of the dreams of my ancestors and I can move forward because of what they have worked hard for and sacrificed.” - Chris Jordan Consul
