Sojourner Truth


The fist thing that came to my mind as I saw Sojourner Truth was the difference in expressions of the left and right faces.  I saw a huge face to the left with more realistic features, yet unable to be heard or seen.  On the other hand, the face on the right hand side is full of rage and even though it has its eyes closed the mouth is open as if her anger is letting be noticed.  As for the face on the middle, it seems to be neutral and so indifferent that at first I didn’t noticed that it was there.  The face on the left could represent a race of women and the one on the left another one.  Both suffering and dealing with the oppression in different ways, but still suffering. Perhaps the face in the middle could represent men, and how indifferent they were towards women’s suffering.
