Following the recent presidential election with its hateful language and outpouring of intolerance, I felt like I needed to create a piece of art to process all of my feelings about it. My first instinct was to create a piece about my urge to huddle in a corner while the darkness closed in.
But all the posts in my Facebook feed were from friends encouraging everyone to act, to protest, make calls, to be a force for good in the world. Then I saw a call for art for the Nasty Women Art Exhibit and I knew I wanted to be among the many nasty women putting their art forward in solidarity. The idea for the piece then transformed into a woman facing the darkness, trying to bring light to the world. I will do my best to be among those bringing light to this dark world.
