Using hand painted papers, found images from used books and ephemera, including 1930’s wallpaper, Citizens almanac, African jewelry and textiles.

For historic context : “The Women’s March was a worldwide protest on January 21, 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. Tensions rose due to his statements, considered by many as anti-women or otherwise offensive. It was the largest single-day protest in U.S. history.” Wikipedia

This piece was commissioned in celebration of that event, nearly four years later and finally, in the last weeks of that Presidency, we have a new President coming in the new Year!
