Abstract

Dignity is a body of work examining and celebrating the efforts of women who are in challenging circumstances to compel a better life for themselves, their families, and their communities. Using the most basic of tools, most notably the hand, women can individually change their outcome, as well as that of their families and their communities. The artwork explores these ideas and focuses on the visual processes and products that women’s hands perform and create around the world.
