Beverly McIver

About The Untitled Monoprint

Very often McIver makes references to her life as an African American, integrating stereotypical elements corresponding with this racial category, hence the slice of watermelon and reference to a black-faced pop-up toy.  Red horizontal stripes may reference life in America, as these stripes trigger thoughts of the American flag.
