It was a genuine delight to make this piece. It borrows completely and unapologetically from the iconography found in the wonderful hooked rugs of Laura Kenney. The entire piece is made from recycled wood, metal and cloth. I'm still interested in representing broader ideas by omitting the human figure and so I resisted showing Judy, Laura's lead protagonist, in the piece and instead chose a few of the recurring motifs that appear in her work.
