To many, sprawling out in the sun seems like a traditional summer pastime. But to Cheryl Pope, the act itself is a socio-political commentary. The artist depicts herself in a state of semi-anonymity through a series of wool roving which is needle-punched onto cashmere. Laying out in the sun with her lover, within their bodily entanglement, the contrast between the beiges and whites of Pope’s female figure and the brown and black tones of the male figure celebrates a biracial relationship. Though this series is far more personal and intimate than Pope’s past works, she still ponders the implications of the nude interaction between black and white bodies.
