They walked the streets at night

First Commission inspired by Hurricane: rally against a social injustice.

Artist Statement

They walked the streets at night examines the way certain policies affect homelessness and how that has led to violation of numerous basic human rights. The deliberate separation and placement of the pieces highlight displacement and how those experiencing homeless are often targeted and pushed to the fringes of society by authorities. This work is made from marble dust, ink, acrylic and oil paint on canvas, steel frame.
