I See You

I made this print shortly after the US election, in despair over what to do, in a gesture of solidarity and commitment to all of us who have been affected, and will be even more acutely affected by the white supremacist capitalist settler-colonial heteronormative patriarchy and the many faces who represent its ugliest facets.

This print is a remix of a hand-drawn camouflage pattern I made a few years ago, now with that secret queer triangle even more visible. I have long been drawn to camouflage patterns and have recently thought of them as a way to visualize intersectionality, of working across difference and also of the tension between visibility and assimilation. Between dazzling and passing.

I want you to know I see you, I acknowledge you, and I love you.

Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week: Palm Oil

March 4, 2015

After a long hiatus, I am reviving my Rad Teen Print of the Week series as Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week, to share the amazing work from university students and other post-teens that I’ve been working with here in Toronto. I first forayed into this zone a few years ago with Lauren Jurysta’s Free Pussy Riot silkscreen.
