The Sewing Circle
The Sewing Circle is a part of a series of work based on the exploration of the woman's role in the KKK organization. I started with the idea that most likely the women were sewing the hoods and gowns for the men of the KKK and was curious as to what extent their involvement was in this organization. In my research I have found that the women were extremely involved in all aspects of this racist organization and perpetuated its growth in membership and involvement in politics. I have several sculptures in process for this series that focus on the history of the caucasian woman and racism.
