The Women   Four Generations of Iraqi Women

~ In June of 2014, as ISIS seized much of northern Iraq and eastern Syria, I became aware of the horrendous plight of the women in this part of the world. Whether Shiite, Sunni, or Christian, these women are suffering enormous consequences of the ravages of these hostilities. Frightened, alarmed, silent, hopeless, and even defiant, their plight speaks to me on a profound level. ~ I have been compelled to somehow express my deep concern and unease about what is occurring to these women, sisters, half a world away from me. ~ This installation is the result of that disquiet that has not yet left me. This voicing is my gift to and for the women of these war-torn areas of the Middle East.
