Susan B Anthony Women's Suffrage Embroidery Art Fiber Activist
This Hurts (Susan)
acrylic and embroidery on fabric, poly-fil
7" x 3"

This Hurts is a small hand embroidered and painted fabric doll of Susan B. Anthony. With Anthony as a symbol for what our democracy should aspire to be, always striving for a more perfect union, the doll is a visual representation of the pain inflicted onto our democracy by the current regressive administration. The poly-fil guts of the doll have been ripped out, simply saying that this hurts, not just me, but everyone who has fought for our democracy in one way or another.
