Woman Removing Her Crown of Thorns
Acrylic on Canvas, 36" x 24"
"Among countless other people around the globe, I was inspired by the riveting testimony and courage of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in the Kavanaugh hearings for the United States Supreme Court nomination and approval in 2018. In the painting, Dr. Ford has removed her glasses and is in the process of removing her symbolic 'crown of thorns.' By this simple act, she has freed herself and many women worldwide from a life of trauma and shame. Meanwhile, a panel of her 'peers' continues to conduct 'business as usual.' Dr. Ford has helped chart and champion an
upward course for, not only the Women's Movement, but also for the fight for equal rights for all. This painting is making its debut at the Fuller Lodge Art Center's "Mapmaker" Juried Group Exhibition." - M.A.
