“Resist to Exist”, 22×28 (wired to hang), $512 plus S&H- One of the key global issues today is violence against women- their bodies, minds and spirits.  Throughout the world, women of color in particular pay the price of systemic patriarchy and misogyny.  This can be understood as the intersections between racism, colonization and sexism. Colonization is not only a past historical process of domination violently imposed on black and brown bodies; it’s a systemic structure that continues to oppress and control their lives. Seeing and valuing our bodies outside of the dominant culture’s lens is an act of resistance and healing.
