'GIANT WOODCUTTER'S PILLOW', 2012, printed cotton, embroidery & silk

“The Woodcutter sits in his cottage, on the periphery of ‘life’, watching films and documentaries as his only means of viewing the world. He sees the destruction that man creates and the beauty, the triumphs of nature and the disasters. He photographs stills of epic moments and moments of reflection and pain from his favourite films and uses them as images for a patchwork quilt, to keep them in sight for eternity.”
