About This Piece
“Rise” is an image of a young woman looking to the sky with the word “RISE” above her head. But the feeling of the portrait invokes something greater. We live in tumultuous times, navigating spaces that are sometimes unsure and hostile, enduring new ways of being divided and ostracized. Images like this are important in planting an idea that can resonate through our communities and evoke change. The mural is an image of power and positivity, an image of a woman, and an image of resilience. By creating something that is general in its representation, while still holding elements important to Indigenous representation, “Rise” is accessible to everyone.
