Title: Tapestry of Hope
Medium: Prewoven textile, drum & beater,
metal stand, acrylic
Size: 36” high x 20” wide at footing
The Tapestry of Hope is a crusade piece, a messenger to the people to get involved! Its theme has to do with the stewardship of the land. I am asking the viewer to use their one solitary voice, the beat of a drum, to sound out a sort of synergized protest against the continued looting and spoiling of this earth for the sole purposes of power and wealth! I want the viewer to take up arms, so to say.
As is every person's hope in life, the simple actions of one, eg. a drum beat, can have a positive effect. Created for a membership show for the Station Gallery, Whitby, On.
