It takes a Village

  • 'It takes a Village' feels primal and raw with it's strong visual image of an animal, vessel or container type composition. The storylines of its history show through the translucent layers of paint and glazes and the markmaking in areas could resemble that of tribal type patterning. Hand and machine embroidery accentuate some of the marks and add another layer of intricacy to the surface.

    'It takes a Village' is a statement piece that would proudly sit alone or amongst other curiosities.
