News of the Supreme Court decision hit me hard. I felt anger, fear, uncertainty, and solidarity with others affected by this decision. Though enraged, I turned to art to quell my quivering heart. My collage “incremental invasion” specifically focuses on the violation of ones privacy and reproductive rights, steeped in dream and holding one’s hand out for a better tomorrow.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Marie Magnetic is a Jewish and Indigenous visual artist based in Chicago. Her art practice examines dystopia, detachment, and delusion in society. Growing up in a small town in southwestern Michigan helped to shape her political ideals and values as she witnessed friends and family suffer from addiction, mental health issues, and poverty. Marie is currently working on a Masters degree of Library and Information Science, and hopes to use her knowledge and research skills to experiment in the art world and shape a more equitable future for all.
