Latest images

Just a couple of images from the latest work on my pieces. As well as the main piece, I have now started another smaller piece based on a particular survivor's story.

This is a detail from the main piece which I feel is beginning to say what I want it to say.

A survivor's story of one of the bombings, children trapped in a burning building who managed to escape and live.

 For some years after my time in Belfast, I would sometimes wake at night and have to go through my experiences, one after the other, until I could find rest to sleep again. Now, to do the work I am producing, I listen to others' stories again and again while I work on the sound track and do my stitch, words that make up a litany of survival and pain.
