Lani Shaw EV 1/4
These four monotype collages were created as studies for the piece, “Change Stories. Transform Culture. End Inequality.” The compositions represent the building of collective power through love, dignity, and community.
Lani Shaw worked for over 20 years at the General Service Foundation (GSF), serving as Executive Director for more than a decade. She was a leader in social change philanthropy, a student of social movements and an unyielding supporter of groups led by people of color. As an ongoing tribute to Lani’s life and work, GSF makes an annual award to support campaigns and exceptional leadership that resonate with Lani’s intersecting social justice passions. I was commissioned to create the image for the award, and these four monotype collages were the first step in my creative process.
