Swim Free by Katherine Andersister

Medium: Paper Cut on Black Paper 

Size: 4 in x 6 in paper cut in an 11 in x 14 in frame 

Artist Statement: This paper cut is an embodiment of my deepest dream for a world that lives in wild, loving connection with all beings, a world free from patriarchy and violence. May all women, femmes, and girls be free! May all humans, animals, and beings be free in joyous concert!

Image Description: There is a text border at the top and bottom of the image that reads “Where there is no rape, no abuse we will all swim free”. In the image, there is a large humpback whale swimming into the frame from the right hand side. On the left hand side there is a femme with long hair who swims towards the left side of the frame. Long lines that look like heart arties pour from the whales heart and scatter towards the left side of the frame. One of the arteries connects with the foot of the femme.
