Migrations

Jeanne Golightly uses her brush to draw attention to social issues. She examines topics like racism, borders, refugees, migration, and displacement. In her work, she explores "the role of hope in the human condition and considers, with interest and wonder, those who move along uncertain paths toward unknowable futures."

In her work, she explores "the role of hope in the human condition and considers, with interest and wonder, those who move along uncertain paths toward unknowable futures."

With this group of paintings, Golightly captures the loss of individuality that people experience as they join mass migrations. By painting aerial views of featureless migrants, her work offers a critique of how governments and media depict refugees and migrants as nameless, faceless masses who have no voice. With titles like Long They Wait, Hope Series No. 17, and Neither Here Nor There, Golightly underscores the predicament migrants find themselves in our present-day world.

Jeanne Golightly resides in the USA and has also lived in Germany, Jordan, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Her paintings are part of private collections in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States.
