For this piece, I wanted to compliment and capture the essence of LunArt. Being an organization that honors and promotes women in the arts, as well as having the Moon as its symbol, it was the best plan I had for the artwork. I chose to have the woman lack a skin color to represent the diversity of women LunArt takes into account. It was also crucial to me to incorporate the Moon being centered and held by her, since I see us women being the Moon’s mirror. Throughout history we have had challenges being seen and considered, but our unwavering resilience granted us the ability to be a light, shining bright regardless of the unfair or dark experiences we were dealt. We are necessary in this world, and as creators and artists, we are destined to show that we and our work matter. ~ Amira Caire, artist
