It Was a Short Fall

“It was a short fall” original mixed media & graphite pencil painting on paper by Trish Vernazza.

This is my emotional reaction to women who suffer at the abuse of others. Homage to the life of Ana Mendieta (who I drew in my feminist portrait series ). Also my thoughts of the Handmaids Tale book by Margaret Atwood and the series on Hulu. The Unwomen. Whose lives were to be meaningless.

I depict these women as falling from a broken window holding onto the dark broken vase with a thorny rose tossed aside. Their hands leave the marks of their past life.

The image measures 18x24and is printed on acid-free archival quality smooth stock. My original is signed and dated on back and shipped flat. Framed $250. Sales of artwork do not transfer copyrights.

Will be exhibited for Twists & Turns at the Brooks Theatre Gallery from 9/12/18 – 10/30/18, 8 performances of DEATHTRAP, October’s First Friday Art Walk at the Brooks Theatre Gallery, Oceanside Theatre Company’s Gala Event.
