Women of Resistance

Finding a trove of beautifully illustrated vintage newspapers in the basement of my friend’s home in central France was like discovering a creative goldmine. I knew they would somehow be used in my art, but I didn’t know how until I visited a Museum of the Resistance in the small town where I was staying. Within 3 minutes of entering the museum I was sobbing. The museum was founded and run by a local woman who’s mother had been a resistance fighter. After a conversation with her I realized how important women were to defeating fascism and I wanted to pay homage to these brave and beautiful women. The series will continue with portraits of strong and rebellious women that correspond to the different years of the newspapers that I have. Contemporary woman heroes are to follow.
