British artist Shannon Bono draws on scientific foundations to inform compelling tributes to Black womanhood, defying colonial histories at every turn.

The process of creating A Reflection of You saw Bono collaborate closely with a print studio in London to reimagine a pre-existing painting, layering the original green palette with luxurious gold tones. Furthermore, the work’s surface is hand-finished by the artist with a series of details in 3D pearlescent cream — making every print unique.

This work is part of We Are History collection curated by Aindrea Emelife.
