Outcry

Gretchyn Lauer's avatar Gretchyn Lauer

I've always loved art because of its transcendence. Just like a good book, a good piece of art can transport you into another world, story, and soul. My hope with this painting is that when you are transported into her soul, you will be greatly burdened by what you find - a beautiful girl with hopes and dreams sold into sex-trafficking at 14 and impregnated by one of her clients at a young age. For her, nightmares were her reality. I want her outcry for help to become our outcry for love, prevention, and healing.
