Louise Wright : A chocolate biscuit


by Louise Wright

Wet and needle felted wool fibres with free machine embroidered African hand batik fabric. This is a self portrait aged about 4 with my mother. It is based on a small black and white photograph, taken in the UK, where I am looking seriously at the camera and holding a biscuit. Our warm clothes and the hat that my mother is wearing, are contrasted with the African hand batik fabric sewn into the background … a memory of my mother’s upbringing in sunnier South Africa.
