Mother and Child, Keep families Together
Text by Nathalie Roland
This project came from brainstorming with Jullia Kim-Biddle about how we could protest the US government’s separation and detention of immigrant families. What I still can not accept is how the perpetrators of this cruel trauma claim to be Christians. I draw upon the Catholic religion of my family and grade schooling, to bring an image of Mother and Child. I made this woodcut and inked with Red and Blue ink on white paper. We then assembled the prints with wooden auction paddles to create mini protest signs, which we distributed to children and their mothers at the “Keep Families Together” March.
