Transition. Change. Going nowhere. Perception. Perception is 2/3rds of the law. This piece is about women artists during fascist times. Oppression. Going backwards. Smile. Stupid. Simple. Whore. Sexy. Prude. The art of manipulation. Crazy. Loud. Grating. Palatable. Transition. Change.

Created against the backdrop of increasing extremism worldwide, light and desire is a piece that must be made, words that must be said, and truths that must be told. Thomas joins five women artists from Venezuela (Carla Forte), Hungary/Germany (Ildiko Toth), Poland (Joanna Lesnierowska), Albania/ Greece (Ermira Goro), and North America (Rosalynde LeBlanc), taking a personal and universal look at how women artists cope under oppressive and manipulative power structures. This feminist collective looks at the many moments of transition and asks how women hold, embody and express power – all in in homage to Women’s Month and the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
