This painting was made during a time of great turmoil for the Black community in America, in which many young men were being killed due to fear, prejudice, and in some cases racism. The title The Only Possible Outcome comes from conversations I have had with my sisters about their young black sons. The title also speaks to the fact that the drip is the only possible outcome when trying to put that much paint on a flat surface that will hang vertically. It is formally questioning if the drip is a failure of the painter's control and conceptually questioning our society for not being able to protect these young Black men and women.
