“Missing Pieces” is a series of paper collages and mixed media sculptures exploring a white woman’s personal journey through the complex issue of race in American History. Virginia has spent the past two years encountering new and renewed knowledge about the realities of racism and what it means to be white in America. With this body of work she attempts to look beyond her initial feelings of guilt and shame in order to come to terms with her role in the ongoing inequities that are rooted in the founding of this country. She hopes her artwork promotes a thoughtful dialogue about these issues that will lead to sustained positive change.
