Art Description

Painting: Oil on Wood.

Following the Women's March, I awoke with a vision of graffiti scrawled across a portrait. The vision translated into a body of reworked portraits featuring slogans from recent political events, quotations, and my own words. The portraits move from the singular to the universal, merging image with voice.

The phrase in this painting as well as the title is from the sonnet "The New Colossus" written by the American poet Emma Lazarus as an ode to the Statue of Liberty. During these troubled times, these words remind us of the best aspirations of our country.

The painting is done on a cradled wood panel with a 1 1/2 inch profile of birch plywood and is ready to hang.
