‘The painful suffering from cultural conflict could transform and develop into hope through unity, understanding and empathy’.
The despair I feel of different cultures and religions suffering in conflict drives me to communicate important messages. It is possible though understanding these, there could be more harmonious consequences and peace. These messages are created by expressions of hope emerging from the pain of this torment using relevant colour, texture and form.
Coloured yarns provide a metaphor expressing the transformation from blood spilt and the agony of suffering through graduated tones to ivory conveying hope. Knots and spikes express tension, wrapped lengths and forms of cages convey protection, bundles suggest unity and cascading ivory forms with buds communicate hope.
