Statement about AOAP submitted artwork
‘The Thinker’ is one of a series which explores the relationships between women, power, and history. Inspired by found historical materials, the women represented are imagined and invite the viewer to create their own narratives around who the figures are and what is captured between them in that particular moment in time.
