Hom, Nancy; Stephanie Lowe

She sews in a sweatshop still dreaming of Gold Mountains / reliving her past through holiday rituals / patiently waiting for her house in the suburbs. / Helplessly I watch the years roll by / on the horizon no houses in sight, just mountains made of brass and sweat [screen print poster]

[Japantown Art & Media Workshop], San Francisco. 1980, 22.75x17 inch screen print poster depicting an older woman working at a sewing machine, a much younger version of herself standing with her mother in the background. Artwork by Lowe to accompany a poem by Hom that was originally published in 1977. Signed in pencil "Stephanie Lowe 1980." Limited edition of one hundred, with number penciled at lower left. A lovely, fine example, from the holdings of the poet herself. This poster was produced as part of a women's silkscreen project organized by Lowe, in which an artist was paired up with a poet.
