“Next Target” by Gillian Moss
This is one in a series of posts featuring an artist whose work is included in the Threads of Resistance exhibition.
A piece made after hearing the news about the first person deported since Trump became President. A young woman called Garcia de Rayos was deported after checking in with authorities as she had been for the last 20 years. New rules meant she was deported to Mexico, a country she hadn’t lived for at least 30+ years. She had to leave her husband and two children. She was made an example of! I made this piece initially with such anger but once I started, I realized it felt like a stone had been lifted off my chest.
