Enough I Series


Have you ever felt enough?

I mean deep within

Your bones

That you

Belonged

That you

Were worthy

That you

Were

Enough



A tapestry-like-quilt work wood cutout, Enough I (2022-2023), presents an image of a woman surrounded by abstract Oak and Mountain Laurel leaves. Within this piece, Roebuck is specifically referencing a statement by James Baldwin, “You were born into a society which spelled out with brutal clarity, and in as many was as possible, that you were a worthless human being.” By analyzing this quote and her experiences with “Racial Impostor Syndrome,” Roebuck is pushing back on the brutal societal norms of being called an “outsider” and “not American,” and often experiencing prejudice remarks. Enough is piece that Roebuck is reclaiming her power and worthiness of her mixed-race identity.
