Joan, 2019, mixed media 19 x 6 x 6

I create symbolic art that speaks to current events. Building upon established storylines from myth, religion, science, and contemporary events my mixed media artworks create a richly layered narrative reflective of our dense and complicated times.

In our society it has become subversive to be both a culture maker and a mother over 40. Often there is an expectation that mothers must sacrifice our intelligence and ambition once we give birth, that somehow bearing children marginalizes our voices and abilities. Persistent Mothers features female figures as a rebellion against the idea that a mother’s voice and rights must be sacrificed by our gender role.

Persistent Mothers features multiple figures that exhibit the ferial quality of those victorious after battle as well as the peace of individuals ready to hand the baton to the next generation. Each of these figures is an abstracted likeness of myself.
