Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 2002
183 x 122cm, two colour embroidery on a wool/cashmere blanket with backing material.
The original version of THE DIVIDED MEADOWS OF APHRODITE was originally conceived in 1975 and published as a print.
Aphrodite was famously a chaste virgin who when spied upon took extreme revenge. Here Aphrodite is shown as an aircraft carrier and the "divided meadows" which is a reference to her labia is the runway from which war planes can be launched against an enemy.
Only 20 examples of this large blanket were made. An artwork to keep you intellectually warm.

Little Sparta: Wild Hawthorn Press, 2002 183 x 122cm, two colour embroidery on a wool/cashmere blanket with backing material. The original version of SAILS/WAVES was originally conceived in 1970 and published as an artist's card. There was an earlier design variant of the same work but essentially the equivalence of the shape of sails being blown in the wind with the shape of waves is the point here. One is reminded in some ways of Wittgenstein's Rabbit/Duck visual pun.
