RED DRESSES

THIS SERIES OF PAINTINGS piggybacks off of the work of Jaime Black,
a Canadian artist… her RED DRESS installations, actual dresses hanging in trees outdoors, have been displayed in both Canada and the United States.
Her work has motivated me to paint red dresses to recognize the loss of thousands of indigenous women missing and murdered on Native American tribal lands.
My series is about creating art as awareness, recognizing that there is an issue, and remembering those women of color lost to violent crimes committed against them… whether it’s domestic violence, racial discrimination, rape or hate.
