Description: This acrylic-on-paper work, entitled "Hell" (1995-96) and measuring 18 x 24 inches, is indicative of the visionary symbolic representations of Sarah Albritton's Christian faith that is a hallmark of her art. Albritton once said: "I was born in hell. I grew up in hell. I started to say, there was hell in my job and hell in home. I wonder when hell's going to leave me alone. ... Let me describe hell to you. If you go back and look at the situation, I was born, nobody loved me, I was hungry, I was naked, and I was cold. And I lived in hell until I could take care of my own self."
