The Cloth Of The World

The Cloth of The World
“Cloth of the World”, photo-transfers and acrylic on canvas.

My grandmother was a dress-maker and worked at Horrockses factory (Bolton or Preston).
She was in the sewing department and during the first world war she hand stitched buttonholes for soldiers uniforms.
This piece was about the contrast of the white cotton and the pollution of the black industrial smog.
