Sojourner Truth Parsons: Dolphin, take me with you

Inspired by the song “Dolphin” (1970) by Linda Perhacs, the paintings reflect on California's bittersweet utopianism. Evoking a garden, Parsons presents dancing black silhouettes, butterflies, and flowers, inspired by her mixed-race identity as a Black-Mi’kmaq-Caucasian Canadian.
