The painful suffering from cultural conflict could transform and develop into hope through unity, understanding and empathy'


This message is created by an expression of unity and hope emerging from the pain of this suffering.

This piece is machine knitted with hand dyed felting yarn and uses the shibori technique to create a surface texture of raised shapes. The dark shapes have been cut to give the impression of wounds leaving the lighter shapes intact to express hope. Each length is knotted throughout symbolising ideas of tension or togetherness.
