Soft Touch is an immersive, tactile survey of soft sculpture and textile art featuring over 40 artists from the Pacific Northwest and far beyond. Audiences are invited to sit, stand, or recline in a gallery cushioned by a patchwork of futon mattresses, shag carpets, and curtaining as they explore work that interweaves themes of identity, humanity, and natural ecosystems.

They All have names...

Refracted Saint No. 4.

They all have names.

 

Current showing in Blue is Our Color at the Hedreen Gallery in Seattle.

This piece is an homage to the hundreds of black women that go silently missing. The woman in yellow represents the goddess Oshun. Here she is the patron Saint of lost souls. Her halo is made from the faces of 214 black women who have gone missing. Vanished without fanfare. No media coverage. No nationwide search.

How did I find them? www.ourblackgirls.com

This site curates images and stories of the missing black girls and womxn that have otherwise been overlooked. Any ONE of these women could have been me. Or someone who looks like me. The 214 girls and womxn here are a fraction of those cataloged on @ourblackgirls.

Take a moment. See their faces. Learn their names. They all have names.
