This was created on a truly awful, hate-filled, violent day. So much life taken. Too much festering fear. Rampant nationalism that claims our humanity. The absolute destructive nature of white supremacy. The horror in Christchurch is OUR horror. The mosques in New Zealand are OUR shattered places of peace.
This original relief print is small in size (3″ x 4″), but mighty in message. It comes to you in an 8″ x 10″ black wooden frame with white mat.
The work is part of Hope McMath’s #100DaysofHope series, which began by creating one linoleum block image everyday for 100 days as a means to bring daily artmaking into her practice. Hope reflects on issue that matter to her most as she looks for ways to sustain and persevere. It isn’t a blind hope of unfettered optimism, but a hope that is based in truthtelling, understanding, love, equity, and the actions that will bring a brighter future.
Each work is hand printed in a limited edition of 10.
