    About The Work

    Hung Liu's Black Madonna is a revisionist presentation of the Madonna and Child theme in art. Here, the holy mother and child are depicted as African American, rather than as the typical virgin Mary and Jesus image portrayed in art since early Christian Era. It is significant that Hung Liu uses the color purple in this image--a color used to connote royalty, since ancient Roman times. It's as if Liu attempts to convey the humanistic message that every human being is sacred and beautiful, no matter what their nationality, socio-economic status, or race.
