Migrants Welcomed

December 27, 2016

 

It was my turn to pick a word for this cycle of Viewpoints9 challenges.  I chose MIGRANT...not immigrant, which means a permanent change of place, whereas migrant refers to a coming and a returning from place to place

 

 

Countless species migrate.  Starting with humans, who over the centuries migrated largely for foods' availability, and on down the chain of life:  insects, fish, mammals.  (Many species hibernate as an adaptation to foods' un-availability)

 

I chose birds, one of my very favorite species.  Using cotton textiles from around the world, I have tried to demonstrate the universality and necessity of migration, in this instance, bird.  Continents presented here are Australia, Asia, Africa, South America, North America and Europe.

 

Materials and techniques:  Stenciled whole-cloth with paints and crayons, appliquéd images, machine quilted, and beads added.
