"Motherland" is a textured multimedia triptych, with each panel dedicated to showcasing the silhouette of the African continent. The texture is a deliberate choice, resembling little beads, to symbolize not only the diverse landscape but also the countless lives and individual stories that the continent encompasses. This textural element is a tribute to each person who calls Africa home, representing the richness of life across this vast land.

The color scheme of this piece draws inspiration from the Pan-African flag, with each panel featuring one of the flag's colors: red, black, and green. These colors, chosen by Marcus Garvey, hold deep significance and connection to the African and African-American histories and identities. The red symbolizes the blood that unites people of African ancestry and the struggles endured for liberation, including the bloodshed from colonization. The black represents the people of the African continent, acknowledging their presence and contributions as a nation worldwide. The green signifies the continent's natural wealth, from its abundant resources and fertile lands to the skills, abilities, and knowledge of its people. It's a reminder that Africa is one of the wealthiest continents in terms of natural resources, contributing significantly to global wealth.

"Motherland" is more than a painting; it’s a narrative that weaves together the struggles, beauty, and strength inherent in the African continent and its diaspora. It's an artistic celebration of Africa's rich heritage, its resilience, and the profound impact its people and resources have had, and continue to have, on the world.
