“Boxers at Rest” (2022), by Alexandra Green, depicts the moments of rest between practice of martial art. She was inspired to create this piece from childhood memories of practicing martial arts and boxing with her father. By depicting faceless figures, she hopes that the viewer can see themselves in them outside of culturally identifying markers.
