Power Grab
fabric, thread
34 x 39 in.

I made Power Grab in response to the current political climate towards women. Sexual harassment and assault should not be trivialized, tolerated or accepted. I wanted this piece to be evocative—strong, bold, powerful. While my artwork is not typically political, with the current attacks on women and women’s issues, I felt that I could no longer remain silent. I am appalled. Power Grab is my protest against the sexual and political assault on women and the attempts to “normalize” or excuse this behavior.
