Painted Ladies Speak – Soutine
20 x 16 in.

Painted Ladies Speak…. is a series of 60 collages rooted in a conversation between images of women in iconic art history references and contemporary social justice protests,from Angelico to Zubaran, from feminism and racism to gun violence. The painted ladies speak to us through the contemporary signage they carry.

Whatever the size of my work, from large scale hanging banners and murals to small books,it is always my hope that viewers will enter a dialogue – internally or with others – on howto think their way through the provocation of images.
