"Reaching for Release" by Stephanie Green
After reading the book, I was moved to make this painting called "Reraching for Release". It is oil paint, oil stick silver leafe, college. The woman in chained to her own body and reaching through the window for the keys to freedom. The chain links are labeled with names of some of the places where women suffer the most. The work is oil paint, oil stick, silver leaf, college, on canvas, 16"x20"x3"". It wraps all around the sides of the canvas creating a demensional effect.
