After the Odalisque

After the Odalisque
By Dail Chambers

A poetic response

Conquered twice,
Blood is seen in two spaces
And happens first
At Birth.

Attacked twice,
Once by colonial love lust
The other by my brother

What is the recourse for patriarchy, capitalism,
War and a slave driven economy?
It will not be the blood of my daughter.


This artwork was created for the Lifeblood Exhibition created by Jennifer Weigel. Tonight was the opening, and the show looked pretty good. It was nice to see so many faces from WCA. I haven't exhibited much at Gallery Visio since Pat Johnson left years ago, so it was nice to see what the gallery has been up to in such a long time.
