Artist Statement:

This wall hanging was created with recycled fabrics and worked with traditional rug hooking techniques, in commemoration of the men from Wanneroo who joined the Armed Forces and went to war to secure our continued freedom.

It was hooked in a confusion of monotone stitches to symbolise the destruction and desolation of war; with the poppy representing the blood spilled on the battlefield and the rising sun illustrating the dawning day and the ushering in of new hope.
