Your Silence will not Protect You - Audre Lorde

  • Your Silence will not Protect You - Audre Lorde

This is one of a set of four prints inspired by the heavily decorated and celebrated Catacomb Saints. I began drawing these at the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis as lockdowns began, thinking of the way we're using language around the expected deaths of people that fall ill, healthcare workers and other essential workers. Yes, people are being very brave, but the ways in which we frame their deaths contribute to who's narrative, power and influence?
