For the past year or so I have become increasingly aware of how rich even the poorest of us in America are compared to a large share of the world's population. Children are especially vulnerable in a world of greed, exploitation and corrupt governments. This piece, completed entirely in fabric collage, seeks to focus on their plight, juxtaposing their "reality" to the almost "caricature-like" life-styles of those of us surrounded by so much stuff . It is a call to action for all of us to care for "the least of these" .
