Description +-

Betty in Blue Turtleneck is a painting of an old, dear friend of CJ Shapiro whom they have painted throughout the decades. The painting aims to reflect her essence and determination. As a Black woman, mother of three, and member of the LGBTQ+ community during a less accepting time, the artist conveys how "Betty’s life is certainly worth documenting."

CJ Shapiro 

As a member of the LGBTQIA community, as an outspoken feminist, and as a Jewish woman who has experienced discrimination and antisemitism, CJ Shapiro uses her work to highlight social conditions that undermine individual liberty and agency. Her work grapples with issues including violence against women and children, sexual abuse, sexuality, race, and gender. Shapiro’s paintings viscerally expose the impact of, and adaptation to, a society that denies its own exclusion, oppression, and exploitation.

Born and raised in New York City, Caren Jo Shapiro is a visual artist, a psychotherapist, and the co-founder of Endangered Bodies. She holds a Masters in Fine Arts, a Masters in Social Work, and a Postgraduate Therapy Degree specialising in eating disorders. Recent exhibitions include “May I …” at StartaArta in New York, NY and Art for Social Change: DISSENT at Oak Park Art League in Chicago, IL.

Donation +-

Based on our agreement with the artist, 15% of the pre-VAT price excluding frames will be donated to support the social movement. Donation will be given to support ACLU.
