Art Description

Sculpture: Fabric on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric).

This was inspired by a haunting newspaper image of a refugee who had been stopped at the Macedonian border and prevented from crossing. He was on hunger strike as a protest.

I used fabric and stitch as it seemed a gentle and appropriate medium.
