About the Art
Here, I embed other countries' flags within ours, highlighting that we are a country of immigrants. Remember the melting pot while celebrating unique cultural differences. My aunt was not allowed to speak Spanish, here, in school. Can we open our borders, minds, and hearts?
Rebecca Woodhouse is represented by WaterWorks Gallery and Ryan James Fine Arts. Music has had a powerful influence on her life. From a strong bass line to the lyrics, the energy and the emotional content are reflected in her art. Much of this music is driven by politics.
It is a moral failing and a national shame when a father and his baby daughter drown seeking our shores. When children are locked away in overcrowded detention centers and the government seeks to keep them there indefinitely. When our government argues in court against giving those children toothbrushes and soap. When President Trump uses family separation as a weapon against desperate mothers, fathers, and children seeking safety and a better life. When he threatens massive raids that would break up families who have been in this country for years and targets people at sensitive locations like hospitals and schools. When children die while in custody due to lack of adequate care.
