Women of Peace (2016) 165cm x 124cm - SOLD
Appliqué quilt made using new and recycled materials.
As a feminist and a craft-activist I look to create artwork that celebrates the achievements of women as well as the contributions they make to building a more peaceful, just and inclusive world. This hanging features the portraits of three leaders who greatly inspire me: Layman Gbowee, Malala Yousafzai and Aung San Suu Kyi. Amongst their many achievements, each of these women have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, hence the title of this work.
This piece was purchased as a gift for Virgin Unite's Jean Oelwany who wrote:
“I’m forever grateful for Tal’s beautiful piece of artwork that proudly hangs in my home. Her ability to create something that is aesthetically stunning as well as carrying meaning and authenticity is rare in this world. I’m so thankful that she is a “craft-activist” that will change many people lives for the better through her work."
