Say Her Name

The news today of Amber Monroe’s lynching in Detroit has filled me with sorrow and anger. As many of you know, I recently began painting portraits of the trans women murdered this year (the statistics already match those of 2014 and will likely surpass them before the year is out). 

The following are portraits of what we as a society have destroyed. The work is still in progress. 

   
    
    
    
 
Pictured are India Clarke, Mercedes Williamson, London Chanel, Kristina Gomez Reinwald, Bri Golec, Penny Proud and Taja de Jesus. The remaining portraits are in progress.
