Adrienne Brown-David's body of work captures the dreaminess of southern landscapes as a backdrop to black childhood that is pure and uninterrupted. Her children, and the idea that black childhood is as important and beautiful as every other childhood, is the subject of her work. This piece is created on a wood panel. It is playing with the idea of the gold halos found in religious iconography but with the saint recreated as a young girl.
