It Shouldn’t be Revolutionary

It Shouldn’t Be Revolutionary: An Exploration of Rest and Taking Care of Black Women

K'shana Hall

K’Shana Hall is a mixed media artist and photographer originally from the south side of Chicago, IL  but mostly raised in North Louisiana. Her method of expression is predominately abstract and is heavily influenced by her culture and experiences as a black woman. K’Shana is passionate about destigmatizing mental health care and it often shows in the themes of her work. Her work is known for its unique texture and bold color choices and has been featured on fashion runways, in university exhibitions, private galleries and various museums. She is a ULM alumna and currently serves as the vice president of the Black Creatives Circle of Northeast Louisiana. BCCNL is a non-profit whose mission is to support black creatives, educate and encourage the visibility and success of black creatives in their respective fields.

K’Shana Hall continues to call to the forefront a need for care and restoration for Black women in a world that demands the continued extension of their physical and emotional labor. Black women have historically been subjected to innumerable stereotypes rooted in hyper-sexualization, misogynoir, mammification, and the myth of the all-serving superhero. This body of work presents counter narratives rooted in ease, gentleness, and boundaries, affirming self-determination and autonomy over how Black women care for themselves and how others should follow suit. Her lapis-hued canvases feature repetitious symbolism that is almost meditative in nature; a nod to the practice of mindfulness and grounding oneself in the present.
