I’ve been working for a few years on an ongoing collage series entitled “The Catalogue of Imaginary Beings,” in which I build larger-than life portraits out of collage material. In the wake of the president’s State of the Union address, I have opted to turn away from my anger and frustration with the White House—and focus my attention instead on the inspirational, monumental and formidable women fighting for equality and leading the resistance.
We’ve seen and heard some powerful and brave women this year. I’m especially inspired by the 116th Congress, which is the most diverse Congress in American history.
That’s why I’m celebrating them with my newest portraits.
