thread painted faces

Recently I have been exploring the notion of cross cultural human connections.  Connections between people, both emotional and physical, sometimes give strength but at other times are fraught with tension.  In either case we all carry ties that bind us to each other.  As the Ubuntu saying goes "I am because you are, our humanity binds us."

These faces were created with free motion stitchery on water soluble fibre.  Then they were encased in co-polyester using clear plastic resin and dye.
