Image Statement: Shredded, knotted, stitched into and adorned, this piece grew from my frazzled “pandemic” mind set and also a reflection of the state of the country. Adornment is indicative of hope. I like that the pants and the many buttons and embellishments have hidden stories from across generations and continents.
