Towers 6

 

Most of the proceeds of this original artwork will go directly to the Khadija Saye Memorial Fund. Khadija tragically lost her life in the Grenfell Tower fire. The fund will help young artists whose background and circumstances might not grant them access to such support.

As the fire was burning, and we all watched helplessly, I spoke to my dad, a pitman. He told me nothing had changed, and that we were still waiting at the pit head for our dead.

It is made using these front pages of the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers, which I found on a train after the Grenfell Tower fire.

The red thread once belonged to my nana, who would not have approved of my knots.

The newspaper strips are hand-stitched to this paper, and then hand-stitched to this paper.

All of my artwork is individually numbered, this piece is 848.

It is unique and can be found in my new shop.
