(On Alina's piece for 40 Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse)
If art is pure thought, “Justice Bell“ is pure unconscious cerebration based on a shared praxis. This co-authored work based on women of the suffrage movement spans several genres, sculpture, installation, printmaking and textiles. The work is the first artistic partnership by sibling artists Damian and Alina who come from two disparate fields. Damian is a designer and sculptor and Alina a textile artist. Each one playing a crucial role in the ideation for this work that was born without constraints, through experimentation, and out of the vast reserves of their collective memory.
