Under The Pink Skies

Paper, fabric, dye, wax and oil paint, 2017

This is me being a part of the Women’s March on January 21st, 2017. As an American woman in Singapore, I had no way of voicing my outrage and distress about the condition.  The real implication and liberties coming from the freedom of speech were felt. In Singapore, it is illegal to hold ‘cause-related’ events without a valid license and publicly protest another foreign government. I am grateful for the freedom of speech, for all of us, in our country regardless of where our opinions lay.
