Factory Farm

28″W X 42″H

Hemp fabric plus natural fiber cords –  hand dyed, screened, painted and stitched.

The imagery and stitching  in “Factory Farm” portrays the crowded and toxic environments encountered on corporate farms.  The single egg implies the difference between mass production and sound farm practice. The text is from a journal written between 1860 and 1864  by my husband’s great-great grandfather, a Spencer County Kentucky farmer.
