Liberation - Maria Leite

Watercolor and ink on paper

11" x 8"


This work is the result of my engagement in mindfulness and art-based approaches to cope with isolation during the 2020 pandemic. Each image has a written piece that reflects my perceptions of social and political events that brought additional unrest to a challenging year.



Maybe it was not history returning

But awakening instead

Maybe it was never over

Maybe it was never dead


Men and women went to jail

Children lost their lives

Where is love what did we do?

Did we believe their lies?


To all unsung heroes

To all sung ones

The fight is not over

Our fight is not done


A vírus keeps killing

But it’s not alone

Another Black life lost

Under a white knee bone
