The Last Supper by Dark Rye
As Julie Green sipped her coffee and thumbed through the paper one morning in 1999, she stumbled upon an article that surprised her. It was a report outlining the final meal request by an inmate that had been executed the night before.
Bothered, Julie turned to her work to reflect, collecting these articles and eventually illustrating over 500 ceramic plates with final meals. She’ll continue painting plates until capital punishment is no longer.
