Fences #V: A Land divided

Size: H:87cm x W: 79cm
March 2002
Price: A$200

This quilt is one of a series made on the theme of fences and how they divide people. In this case the Australian governement passed laws regarding refugees that divided the country. and polarised a usually tolerant society.

I used natural dyes, recycled wool, silk and batting (on top) with various thready. It was exhibited at Dalby in a Flying Arts exhibition on September 2002. As you can see it is for sale as I am having a bit of a clear out. Wool quilts are bulky to store.

I get a sense that the imposed division didn't leave people feeling passive.
Hope there'll be a Fences #VI!
