Nolite te bastardes carborundorum
while not an actual sentence I learned in High School Latin, this Handmaids Tale call for strength and resistance shot straight to my heart.
Cut from a single sheet of black archival paper, this quote is surrounded by a lush bouquet of flowers and 20 pollinators and garden visitors.
It is framed in a 12″x16″ double paned glass frame, which means that the backing of this piece is glass, allowing the papercut to cast its shadow onto the wall on which it hangs.
*special apologies to Father Liguori who taught me high school Latin and would not have liked the language or conjugation of this sentence. Long Live Women Who Resist!
