My piece, "Grace", is about those things that I am fortunate enough to have, but have done nothing to deserve them. The piece was inspired by a photo my son took of the “pueblos jovenes” or young towns of north Lima, Peru where some 3 million people live in poorly constructed shacks in slum settlements. Most are lacking electricity and proper sanitation, while many homes have no potable water supply. So many things we take for granted. So many privileges. With all of the places in the world one can be - what are the odds I would wind up here?
"Grace" was created with multiple layers of photo transfers on silk organza. Layers were assembled and machine stitched, colored pencil was added and then finished with machine quilting and hand embroidery. 9" X 27"
