In Harm's Way

What began as an exercise in rendering the drapery of a Roman statue took on a different meaning after I followed a process through the courts involving the historical sexual assault of a child. The figure became a symbol of the court and the fragility of our access to justice. The expectation that a trial will bring justice is naive and the cruelty possible to the 'victim' who comes forward appalling.
