"This print comes about two burning voices—the loss of so many people and artists through AIDS and starvation. I lost my oldest godchild through contracting AIDS—when folks were dying it was only a homosexual and addict's disease...These experiences set the stage for my subject matter."
—From Brandywine Workshop and Archives records

"In Send the Message Clearly, Valeries Maynard explores global economics of inequity in the context of the Black body and, in doing so, she relates the African American body politic to its cultural and historical roots in Africa and its diaspora. Maynard uses collage and appropriation to reinterpret iconic imagery and visualize interrelated and multi-generational histories in both national and global context."
—From Brandywine Workshop and Archives records
