This image came about after a relocation, and thus represents the breakage of the ‘fabric of life’ due to geographic/social changes. But it is just as relevant for any other breakups, conflicting commitments, reality vs dreams conflicts etc.

    oh how I love this work! Very reminiscent of so many aspects in so many ways… I love how the roots from the UK are attempting to keep you close – nice method to tie them all together – and I love the stitching too. I would love to see more of the studies you speak of.
