In Together They Could Do So Much, artist Cassandra Barney reflects, “The first time I put on an apron I thought it created an illusion of working very hard, which I enjoyed. I also thought it was sassy to stomp around the kitchen in heels and my apron…but that symbol has transformed for me into an image of charity and hard work. It’s not necessarily about motherhood because there are, I think, opportunities in every season of our lives for us to give to those around us. With this painting, I’d like to pay tribute to those who give because they love.”
“Barney’s images capture the souls of heroines, everyday women who have found strength and personal victory in their diverse experiences. Her portraits carry a range of emotion reflective of the events that have shaped their character. Ambiguous and poignant, Cassandra’s women find strength in their femininity. “They are beautiful and strong, because of the complexity of their feminine nature.”
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou
