JUSTICE

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS 80X120CM

Amongst the four cardinal virtues recurring in Greek philosophy, the virtue of Justice is for those who render and safeguard the rights of others. This virtue is for those who are uninfluenced and maintain their lack of bias, even in times of hardship and despair. Justice has had numerous depictions in all mythologies, cultures and fables over centuries. However, the commonality amongst some of these depictions is the gender of justice…it has always been female. It is from this virtue, civil and balanced societies are conceived and maintained.

In this oeuvre, the depiction of the Lady of Justice is with a colorful scarf that is blindfolding her. It symbolizes her impartiality, for she does not see status, wealth or class. She is immune to all biases and therefore is the guardian of fairness and equality. As we lose ourselves in the swirling pattern of the blindfold, we are left to think about our biases and how they fog up our perspective. Maybe we are the ones wearing a blindfold?
