No Woman, No Cry

No Woman No Cry, Chris Ofili, 1998

A picture says a thousand words. Saw this floor to ceiling painting at Tate Britain three years ago during the Chris Ofili retrospective. Part of his Turner Prize winning collection, No Woman,No Cry was inspired by Doreen Lawrence and produced as a tribute to her murdered son as well as a universal portrayal of grief. Each tear drop has an image of Stephen Lawrence. Click this link to see it in detail.
