Let Our Voices Emerge

WORKS-IN-PROGRESS

Let Our Voices Emerge is a body of work inspired by the efforts of all oppressed women to gain civil rights. These women represent the universal struggle to be seen and heard and the burqa symbolizes the invisibility of women and girls worldwide and serves as a unifying element among the women as they merge into one body. I have used simplified shapes and a somber palette of dark grays to represent despair, and bright glowing colors to signify hope, determination and power. These women represent women of all cultures who struggle for basic freedom and the right to be heard.
