NYC Show Featuring Elicit Justice Series
Stephanie's current show, Elicit Justice, is on display until March 2020 at the Arts and Crafts Beer Parlor in uptown Manhattan. The series focuses on one of the four virtues of stoicism: Justice. Eight elements that aid in achieving a more equitable society are included in the first segment of this series ~ equality, security, truth, respect, education, hope, freedom and peace. Inspired by street art and graffiti, the work depicts these attributes in a coded way with symbols and words, including languages from countries where justice is considered lacking. The paintings are matched with various quotes meant to start a dialogue about how we perceive justice and how we can facilitate change. https://www.stephaniedrawdyfineart.com
