10,197 drops of paint. One for each fatal encounter with the police between the murders of Eric Garner & George Floyd.

For this piece, the artist wanted to take a moment to honor every life lost due to an encounter with the police by applying a drop of paint to the page. The original watercolor was digitized for printing. The drops inside the fist represent the 2438 Black fatalities. The drops around the fist (in the circle) represent the 1441 Latinx fatalities. The drops in the cracks of the fist represent the 337 Native, Asian, Pacific Islander, & Middle Eastern fatalities. The dots outside the circle represent the 4251 white facilities. The additional 1730 fatalities where race and/or gender is unknown are distributed throughout the rest of the piece. Women, men, trans/non-binary folks are represented as different colors within the above locations.
