Paradoxical World

Lou Wolf Vallance's avatar Lou Wolf Vallance

This artwork provokes us to further contemplation of the some of the many threads of our ever changing world. International travel and commerce purportedly creating a global village. Sport, the great leveler of nations, both rich and poor. Our male "Super Heroes" continue to dominate the comic books and movies, whilst women continue to struggle to break the glass ceiling. Our world food crisis, but increasing obesity levels in the western world. Extreme wealth and extreme poverty. The list is endless. What IS the free world? This work is composed of pieced fabrics , some are hand dyed by myself and other commercial fabric. It is hand stitched and hand embroidered and has been worked on for a year before it was recently finished.
