Loving v. Virginia, laser cut watercolor painting on paper, 39.5 x 29 inches ©2018

Loving v. Virginia (1967) was the Supreme Court decision that invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage in the United States. This painting is based on a composite of photographs I found online of the plaintiffs, Richard and Mildred Loving. The text laser cut into the painting is the Opinion Of The Court from their Supreme Court case.
