22 x 14 inches (56 x 36cm)
Commercial Hindu and North American cottons, purchased Cuna appliqu? block, needle-turned appliqu?, hand embroidery and quilting.
This noisy bird lived across the street from my apartment building in Medellin and could be heard through closed windows, screaming daily about ?respect?. No siestas on my block! He inspired this piece which I subsequently turned into an exercise to reduce my fear of doing appliqu?. I couldn?t sleep that afternoon so what other option was there?
