Mother and Child, from Conspiracy, The Artist as Witness

A dark-skinned woman cradles a dark-skinned baby in her arms; the baby looks out, and raises an arm. Their forms are made up of blocky shapes, appearing like a collage, and they are set against a blue, green, and red color-blocked background.
