Last Three Pieces for Eastern State

These represent the "Weeping Chorus" of those left behind to mourn the chaos when someone is incarcerated. I tried to refer to the aspects of the windows in Cellblock 9--where each cell has a prisoner and an ornamental window. In these windows the ornamental design has moved into the space with the figure. Why women? Well mainly because most prisoners are men. I wanted to avoid the romantic relationship, hence mother, sister and daughter but the sister seems to have snuck into that territory on her own! Thes windows are in Cellblock 14.
