"I had fourteen panels that I push-pinned to the wall around the gallery, mostly about the torture of Central and South American women political prisoners and the conditions in which they were jailed and abused. I was zeroing in on the subject, investigating as a woman the condition of women. What does it mean to be a woman political prisoner? And, again, what does it mean to be a woman artist?"
