S.G 101- Iron On Patch
2″ X 2″ inch Limited-Edition (Iron-On Patch) by Rhea Leonard.
Pulling from mythology and folklore , both existing and fabulated, this patch is made using symbols that occur frequently through-out Leonard’s drawing and print bodies of work. The symbol acts as a seal of protection for Black bodies as they go about daily life. As a patch, the symbols gain a practical, yet performative function as they work “protect” the wearer from harm and misfortune once applied to an article of clothing.
