Title : Exploitation
Materials : acrylic on wood panel, unframed, natural wood sides, wired for hanging
Date : 2017
Dimensions : 10 x 10 inches
Description : Due to my concern for the oppression of women’s rights in this present political climate, my thoughts, and work are focused on this subject. The truth is that sexism and racism still exist in our country and poverty, hunger, violence, and inequalities remain. In earlier paintings, I have painted representational portraits of oppressed women and have incorporated painted symbols such as blinded eyes, a raised hand, and silenced mouths. The year “2017” is subtly painted to the side.
