"High Tech Lynching", 34"H x 26"W, ceramic bas relief
"I thought Clarence Thomas was a real arrogant person who just liked to play with people, I mean play his own games on other people's backs. And Anita Hill was a beautiful, direct, forthright person whom I could trust and whom I would have liked to know. She didn't seem to be hiding anything. Another thing was the respect she showed her mother from the photographs I saw. I did a sculpture of her and her mother to get more of a sense of what the mother was like. "High Tech Lynching" is one of several sculptures of her."
