The captured series was my response to a open call for an exhibition through the Miniartextil organization based in Como Italy.
The exhibition was searching for works that addressed 3 criteria:
- Size of 20cm x 20cm x 20cm
- Respond to the theme “Pop Up”
- Incorporate the use of fiber and textiles
I worked on several pieces to explore my options. It was only upon completion of the series that I realized that the oppression of free speech and civil liberties had been creeping into this work.
All pieces are acrylic mixed media on wood panel.
