UNSHELTERED

 

(Series 2018)

Each painting in this series highlights the locations of women's shelters in gentrifying areas of Brooklyn. The geometry of each painting is based upon a map of each site, and the palette is informed by the colors of shelter interiors, feelings of blight and hope.

These pieces were made specifically to raise money for the Tillary Street Women's shelter and 100% of the proceeds will go towards purchasing basic necessities for the  200 women who live there.

Watercolor and marker on paper.
