Suspicious Suicide, 2017

Woodcut on Voile
34” x 50”

“Sandra Bland was pulled over by Texas police for a minor traffic violation. Suspicious Suicide reveals the possible circumstances and unanswered questions surrounding Sandra Bland’s death while in Texas police custody. This piece is featured on the cover of Artscope magazine for the March/April issue representing the 2017 Wheaton Printmaking Biennial. In November of 2016, my woodcut Loosie Law from the same woodcut series was added to the permanent collection of the Boston Public Library.”
