In Reaching/Uniting/Becoming Free, we see an early instance of the graphic, impactful, and fluid style that would characterize series like The Birth Project and PowerPlay. There is a sense of feminist potential—that in art women can strive for professional recognition, find community, and liberate themselves. It is an image that is both abstract and irrevocably related to the specificities of (women’s) bodies.
