Equals Revolution, 28×16 inches, Watercolor on paper

My recent body of work traces a lineage of punk rock feminists, starting with the Riot Grrrl bands of the nineties and continuing to current movements that bear a similar energy. The work follows two intersecting paths: first, they are heroic portraits of revolutionary women; second, they are meditations on digital and painted media. I’m fascinated by the fierce, youthful, anti-establishment rage of the people portrayed. They’re righteous, bold, and angry, and the artwork is filled with sincere respect.
