In the collage Dark Angel (1989) Marshall presents a black figure with striking white eyes and teeth. The collage technique brings color to the piece, and makes the face of a Black figure appear. The contours of the completely black surface of a figure come to the fore against a graffiti background. The face of the Dark Angel is a comic-like representation including.
