Now Is the Time is a limited edition print celebrating a key moment in history we are all about to help shape. With this artwork, I tried to convey the elation I get from the prospect of seeing a strong woman in the White House-----truly the culmination of an incredible & moving lineage of achievements by many American women. So I placed a few of them in an hourglass of history...In this "American flag" reimagined, the women, in blue & white, are the stars.
American Woman "Firsts"
There are no names. Just achievements and dates. A collective sisterhood. When I read each one, I can imagine all the barriers overcome and can feel the contributions made. Each one builds on the previous one, and truly, today we are standing on the shoulders of many remarkable women.
The text gets is smaller as time recedes, as if to say there are so many who will never be counted or credited who have taken us this far. The accomplishments of these women are like grains of sand, so numerous but they have also been invisible in history.
