Mighty Woman with a Torch
$159.00 – $989.00
Artist Laura Loving is known for her colorful images of New York City. “A Mighty Woman with a Torch” is her latest creation celebrating the 130th Anniversary of Lady Liberty’s arrival from France.
Lady Liberty has always represented a progressive intellectual world view. She has been a feminist long before women had the right to vote. The poem inscribed on her very body has preached the benefits of inclusivity and acceptance even when the many of our citizens struggle to get on board.
The original collage this limited edition print is based on was composed entirely from found and re-purposed vintage magazines with painted details. The treatment of the material is delicate and precise. Laura hand-cuts 100s of tiny paper elements to create the collage. Her intention is to render a textural and vivid image by layering and combining tiny pieces of colorful and patterned paper. The title of this image is a wink to the poem “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus that is engraved and mounted inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. In Laura’s image, The words from Lazarus’ iconic poem swirl in the harbor water surrounding Lady Liberty.
