Artist’s Statement

“Pussy Paws Resist”/ applique & hand-embroidery on textile/created as a poster for the first Women’s March in 2017

 

I make memento mori in a variety of media from embroidered textiles to full-sized billboards. The intent of the work is to encourage the viewer to be mindful of the ephemeral nature of life, nations, and human endeavors. Notwithstanding the seriousness of the subject I try to infuse the message with more wit than morbidity.

Since 2017 I’ve focused most of my work on Resistance Art against the administration of Comrade Trump and his myrmidons.
