Manumission (monoprint) by Polly Castor




Manumission means being released from slavery, an important concept that is fabulous both in a literal and metaphysical way. I originally thought of depicting this idea in broken chains, but it was rather uninteresting compositionally. Then I hit on the idea of breaking through a fence or cage to represent this idea, and this print was born.
