Girl by the Wall - with "The New Colossus" (2017)
24" x 24"
Acrylic on Canvas
Like so many people, I am horrified at the suffering going on all around us. Every day the news overflows with it. The rhetoric we hear is that we must take care of ourselves first, to "be safe" from the other, the outside, the over there… meanwhile divides grow within the borders of our own country. It crumbles from within while fear, hate, politics and greed gnaw at the very core of who I thought we were. No wall will keep that out. No amount of turned backs will shield us from our own hypocrisy. We must resist.
