AIDS TRIUMPHANT

Woman in a red dress holding a saucepan. She is both terrified and angry. Her right arm is raised to strike but she has no hand. She has no mouth. Sperm swim around the edges, two of which are death-heads.

Artist Comment

When we are unable to speak up.  This is one of my most powerful images and means a lot to me. In Asia, I was struck by the powerlessness of women. They could not say no. Because of their culture. This is a nice woman, a housewife, who will die from AIDS given to her by her husband. She cannot refuse anything. She is terrified and so angry, but it is hidden. NOT NOW.
