When artist LaToya M. Hobbs sees women of her community, she sees them for the deep, powerful, and complex people that they are. Much like the delicate tendrils of plant life edging their way into her panels, Hobbs’ women are fully formed and thriving in their own right. Drawing from her experience as a printmaker, Hobbs carved their images into wood panel to explore “the print matrix as art object.” These multifaceted, mixed media relief carvings hover between sculpture and painting. Each one is richly textured and three-dimensional, much like the women they represent.
