About the piece:

"It has become clear that the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v Wade and over 20 states are posed to put trigger laws into effect outlawing abortion even in cases of rape and incest. This is a sad day for women’s rights and for democracy. As an artistic protest, the Plan B Art Project has gathered over 50 artists to make “Amphora inspired” wearable artforms and objects to bring attention to the forcible restrictions put on a person’s ability to make decisions for their own bodies." 

About the artist:

As for my work in general, I see beauty in the mundane. I am preoccupied with displacing tangible artifacts to influence perceptions, trigger memories, and alter realities. My creative practice is driven by my passion for history and collecting, an interest in hybridization, the absurd, and the human propensity for excess and ornamentation. I look beyond material and process; I am comfortable working in a variety of materials and select those that are suited to an articulated and researched concept.
