Show Statementhidden like gold is a series of hand-cut collages about girls and women of color existing in and out of the spotlight, in loud spaces, in quiet spaces, in spaces made for us, in spaces made by us, in time and outside of time. Each piece in hidden like gold explores our place and unearths our relationship with ourselves, with each other and with the universe. Read the press release here.
