Nena St. Louis

The Vestals


Artist review:

"...inspired by Dogon sculpture, Nena St. Louis carves each piece by hand... The evocative beauty of the work can be further appreciated in St. Louis's emotional rendition of the universal struggle to survive amid great adversity....She manages to tell the story of the African Diaspora from the often silenced perspective of the women who suffere, sustained, and triumphed for generations to arrive here in America. Each sculpture is a celebration of survival and femininity..."-Kim, SF Bay Guardian.
