PROJECT DURING LOCKDOWN
When we still lived in the UAE, I had one of my images printed multiple times onto fabric whilst I was on a visit to Germany. Now living in Canada, I finally got round to working on it during lockdown.
The work is made up of three layers, two of which I cut into strips to weave; the third serves as a backing.
I chose a weaving effect to portray interconnectedness and interdependence - concepts we all became more aware of after the onset of the pandemic, and the necessity of which will be strongly felt as we move out of it.
As all stores were shut at the onset of Covid, I made use of the cotton I had at home to do all the required stitching by hand.
The finished piece is 100cm X 130cm.
