Holly Wong: Palestinian Child
This print is 22'' x 22.''
Holly Wong's artistic intention is to bear witness to suffering, in an effort to transform society by serving as a mirror. Her work concerns how war impacts civilian populations, especially women and children; and she often depicts the effects of war, occupation and unjust labor conditions upon the most vulnerable members of our society. Through acrylic and oil stick painting, as well as drawing, she explores these subjects using figurative motifs.
