White Gilt

Found and altered


11" x 9" x 1"


While visiting a thrift store, I discovered this plate. Initially, its decorative nature caught my eye, but upon further inspection, the title read: A Southern Plantation. I was intrigued at how this beautifully bucolic scene could have such a dark and sinister past.  I attempt to right the wrong by removing the guilty parties involved all the while painfully aware this is an exercise in futility.
