Rise Up

Rise Up

“The world today seems increasingly turbulent and uncertain. The jar speaks for the degradation of women and the continued need for their empowerment. This has long been an important theme in my art. The women’s fists are uplifted. They are the ones to hold our leaders accountable or they will be “hung out to dry”. The fists are entwined with the symbolic black snake of the oil pipelines. It is corruption that will eventually eat away at politicians from the inside out. I painted each section of this jar as a call for those who feel empowered to rise up”. – Virgil Ortiz
