I was honored to have my work, “Let Us Pray; Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” featured on the cover of the Fall 2020 Surface Design magazine. The issue was dedicated to an exhibition in print titled “Devotion: Sewing the Sacred” posed the question: What does devotion look like in material form?
Made with acrylic, latex paint, thread, twine, tree bark, canvas, heatset lettering, monofilament, the work takes the form of a Tallit (a traditional Jewish prayer shawl) stitched with the poem by Emma Lazarus, which is inscribed on the statue of liberty. This piece, to me, embodies the dual devotion that characterizes my work, that of a social activist and a Jewish woman. This piece was also included in a recent show at the Ethan Cohen Gallery in Beacon, New York, as part of the Darkest Before Dawn exhibition.
