Metal Prints

Keep checking back as I add new work! Here's one of the new pieces in my series of dye-sublimated prints on aluminum. Interested in the background on how these developed? Read my blog post on the series

"The Burma Series: Breaking Walls/Breaking Patterns shines a light on the plight of the Rohingya women of Burma, bringing attention to a group of people who are being systematically persecuted. People, perceptions, and this pattern of female persecution and punishment must change. How can each of us ensure women's safety and freedom of speech and religion?" (Background photo: Bagan, Burma)

  More timely than ever,  Breaking Walls, Breaking Patterns  was selected for exhibition in the 2018  Patterns  themed show at SFWA. Produced by    Scaleupart.com   . Ed 1/1.    ©2018 srkirshenbaum
