Justice, For Women
These bas reliefs started after I spent a month traveling in Egypt. In many of the ruins panels of hieroglyphics told stories of history, often of war and sometimes of oppression. With these in mind, I created these modern-day panels that include symbols of justice for women, immigrants, and people of color in the United States. I imagine these panels on the wall of someone who is engaged in activation in the name of justice for all.
