Somebody's Child 2

63" x 16"
after the recorded murder of George Floyd calling out for his Mama, I researched black lives taken at the hands of police. over 4700 names of African Americans who died of gunshots or asphyxiation in police encounters in the past 20 years were digitally printed to silk organza and then layered. each one was somebody’s child. all of these folks had Mamas.
digitally printed on silk organza, fused, machine and hand stitched
