The practice of making art is reactionary and reflective, often a response to the significant experiences in an artist’s life. Those deeply private or public moments contribute something essential to the formal structure and themes in an artist's work. A discussion with artists Sue Coe and Zena el Khalil examines the influences on their art, and their commitment to human rights, animal justice, gender equality, and world peace.
