Artist Statement
Statement by Anastasia Pelias, on her artistic response to Syrita Steib-Martin’s experience:
A painting about Syrita, for Syrita. Listening to her sweet voice telling her story: past and present. Listening to the music she listened to on her Sony Walkman while she was incarcerated.

The dimensions of the canvas are 67 x 67 inches, the measurement of Syrita’s height and wingspan. My intention in making this painting was to express the essence of Syrita. Female. Fighter. A relentless advocate for women, an impassioned mother. An unstoppable force of nature.
