The dress is part of an ongoing installation project about domestic violence. Each article of clothing represents social accountability and human fragility. Each dress is a silent witness. W speak of wars as if they only exist in far away places - most times, they exist just outside - or - inside our own doors.

Artist Note: I have enjoyed the Day of The Dead imagery since I moved to Texas from Connecticut at 13 and even though I am a Spanish Jew I wanted to make something related to the Mexican Holiday.

Ghosts of Ma'iingan
I am a mixed media artist working with collage since 1967. I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, continued graduate work at Pratt University and New York University. In 1969 I merged my artistic background with my passion for wild animals by creating Wildlife Education Program and Design. For the last 42 years worked at both painting and my international efforts for rational understanding and conservation of wolves, canids, and other predators. I continue to present programs throughout the United States (no longer with live wolves) but now with a large historical and scientific display.
This contribution to the Book of Death emerges from my despair over the continuing destruction of predators, and in particular the coyote and the wolf. Despair because we are about to repeat the same antiquated intense and cruel extermination programs.

Retablo - Collage
Janice holds a BFA from Oregon State University with a concentration in graphic design. She has had a graphic design practice in Colorado for many years and began to seriously explore her interest in collage about ten years ago.
Along the way, she studied collage in Dale Chisman’s abstract painting class at the Art Students League of Denver and worked with collagist Jonathan Talbot in New York. Her unusual technique is the result of many influences and years of experimentation.
Janice’s work has been included in an International Collage Exhibition at Kansas State University, a solo show, “Re-Purposed,” at Denver's Edge Gallery in 2009, and in juried exhibitions around the US and throughout the world. She is a signature member of the National Collage Society and helps moderate an online collage group that is sponsored by the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage, and Construction.
