Between Heaven and Earth

I made this triptych after trips to Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia, to express the contrasting, even conflicting, feelings I had about them. In all three, the difficult histories and current problems lurk not very far beneath the enticing, colourful, delightful surface. 

Between Heaven and Earth, 2016: wool fibre, threads, fabric; stones, keys, chain links; wet-felted. Each piece is approximately 30cm x 120cm.
