'We Are All Branches of the Same Tree" - Global Murmurs Art

"We Are All Branches Of The Same Tree". Just completed and will be submitted for acceptance into a show called "Global Murmurs" ( in Rochester, NY later this year. The prospectus statement says "Global Murmurs invites you to explore the subtle and ever present concerns, joys and curiosities of humankind so often influenced by cultural and national boundaries.

The trees are made of 4 different fabrics and quilted for texture with variegated threads. The background - which was the hardest all branches, depicting the many millions of us represented in the two stronger branches, of different colors.
