Massacre of the Innocents 2003

Created in 2003 in response to the invasion of Iraq, I used dismembered doll parts scattered across the polka dot fabric to simulate an explosion.
The title refers to a biblical story, often chosen by artists in the past, to reflect violence and warfare during their own times.

Drawing a Line 2004

An experiment in mark making using non-traditional materials to ‘draw a line’,
the title also refers to ‘making a stand’ to indicate a level at which something becomes unacceptable.
