Fabric Wall Hangings

See Collaborations, Judy Farrow for Artist Statement

Depicting two distinct personalities, A Marriage honours the joining of the two people who inspired the work. On one side are animals that express the qualities of one half of the union: the eagle is knowledgeable and protective of her children. The deer is traditionally introspective and very observant. The killer whale is a hunter/provider. Tying the two sides together, the killer whale is also featured in the other half of the work. Here it represents direction and movement, while the osprey is keen-sighted and fiercely protective of its nest. The big-horned sheep is agile, powerful and has strong footing, enabling it to manoeuvre through adversity.

A Marriage

Celebrating a Special Union was inspired by the engagement of the artist’s sister. Nestled inside an emotional moon, two salmon embody the feminine and the masculine. The blue background is both a realistic reference to the water, as well as providing a contemplative nature to counterbalance the fiery passions of the red.
