Gail D. Panske. Bend The Air. Woodcut, serigraph on paper. 2018.

From the first time I read the poem What Night Knows, I could not stop thinking about it. I kept returning to it, trying to understand itsmeaning. I kept going back to the lines, “Some women ride dreams, And bend the air, freeing”. At some point it became obvious to methat I was searching for a way to represent a woman who bent the air. That strong and powerful woman was Justice Ginsburg.
