44 of 43
This is an ongoing project something i intend pursuing for life. Entitled 44 of 43. It's a series of small sculpted clay figures. They represent the estimated number of refugees in the world at the moment .
I had planned on stopping at 43 but decided to just keep making them, hence the name. I think It's the only way to visually show the vast number of men women and children who's homes, lives and choices have been taken by the abuse of those more powerful.
As such they resemble chess pieces and are no bigger than my hand. However each piece is unique. I hope to show that refugees are people, men, women and children who basically need help long before any other statistic, problem or division can be argued.
