Artist's description:

Re-examining the phrase see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil was the impetus for this piece. It is a proverb that many cultures grow up with that has a dual meaning. You are either of good mind and action or you are turning a blind eye. I like to work with layers so it helps to know that monkeys are usually depicted in the proverb and my choice of using three different generations of African Americans matters. The timeless nature of this 17th century old image has proven that it can stand up to the test of time and all of its changes. Therefore if the viewer, in 2015, were to consider/refer to this proverb as a wise saying they would need to reflect upon their everyday lives and examine each situation to determine a course of action.
