I have come to feel as if I know these children whose images I am creating out of snippets of fabric. As their features develop so does their character. My soft life has not prepared me for such adversity as they see daily. May we who have so much never lose sight of our responsibility to the rest of the world.
Here are some of the latest additions to my Art Prize piece.
And a bit of progress on the "other side" of things. This piece is meant to focus on the plight of millions of children around the world whose "reality" is a daily struggle to survive - contrasted to my life - our lives - which by comparison almost seems "cartoon-ish" because of the comfort and over-abundance of "stuff" we have.
Given my self-imposed deadline of August 15th , I see a few late nights ahead.
Much is yet to be finished.
Better keep cuttin' up !
