(22 inches by 31 inches)
This work was inspired by the words of Psalm 22:1, words that gave expression to the forsakenness that Jesus experienced on the cross.
This work was pieced from black commercial cotton and rayon fabric from which I selectively removed the dye. It also features fused appliqué, hand embroidery, an African mask made of bone, and improvisational stitching.
