“When There Are Nine” was created as a tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. During her tenure on the Supreme Court, she was a great champion of voting rights who unfailingly sided with voters on election issues. This piece is a raw-edge collage using commercial and hand-dyed fabrics. The collar is crocheted from embroidery floss. The pink background symbolizes Judge Ginsburg’s steadfast devotion to women’s rights and equality under the law. The flowers in the chair symbolize beauty, and femininity, while the butterflies represent bravery and relentless hope for the future. The title is Judge Ginsburg’s response when she was asked when there be enough women on the Supreme Court.
