States of Contradiction III

 Wall Hanging   –    2004    –    60 x 45 cms

This work is concerned with ‘prisoners of war’ who are bound and confined, without due process of law and in contravention of the Geneva Convention.

The weaving of the horizontal text and vertical images symbolise the dichotomy between two opposites and highlights the disparity between sentiments expressed within the American Constitution and the practice of holding prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
