Fenced In

This work was created for a group exhibition with Artnauts, “an artist collective that uses the visual arts as a tool for addressing global issues while connecting with artists from around the world”. This work was exhibited in Bosnia and the theme was Hegria & Other Passages. Layers of cut translucent paper were used to create silhouettes of fencing and barbed wire.  The imagery directly addresses the immigration policy of the united states to both fence people in and to fence people out. The use of paper references a recent policy of separating families and incarcerating children, a policy built on flimsy grounds that will eventually collapse like a house of cards. The use of translucent paper exposes the disorienting and cumbersome policy to illustrate how the family separation policy is a transparent act of bigotry and hatred.
