Description

A work of art by low country Gullah artist Sonja Griffin Evans that depicts an African American woman in the rural south that works in the fields pickin' cotton.

The title of the work of art was inspired by Sojourner Truth's speech from the 1800's titled "Ain't I a Woman". This speech spoke about how a woman can be "worked like a man (and beaten like a man) and so is considered less of a woman and less of human being."

Sonja Griffin Evans
Sonja Griffin Evans is an international Cultural Heritage Artist born and raised in Beaufort, South Carolina. Growing up in the Lowcountry, which prides itself on its ability to preserve its culture and heritage, has heavily influenced Sonja's artwork, and gives her an uncanny ability to capture the beauty, spirituality and purest representations of the Gullah Sea Island and of African American culture. As a prolific mix media artist, she incorporates items such as tin, wood and other found materials in her art. She is also adept at painting the vibrantly colored art on canvas that is acknowledged as the traditional Gullah style; by applying texture to her canvas and her masterful choice of color, she takes her art a step further to convey more depth and feeling.
