Cotton thread, wool felt, acrylic

This piece, Anna, speaks to the deeply harbored pain of intimate abuse. The figure remains in darkness with only a crack of light illuminating her face, seemingly from a door to a room which she remains inside.

This work was done freehand on my machine, without any preliminary sketching or composition. I feel this work deeply and see the slightly distorted proportions of the face to illustrate the disfiguring realities of this pain.
