What If…. – SHIRLEY PINCHEN

23 February, 2020

If we cannot show justice to our most vulnerable, mercy to our weakest and obedience to God`s laws we descend into darkness. Around the world today abortion kills more than 125000 per day. Who knows what these people may have become and how they might have contributed to our world?
This artwork looks at this massacre. The black marks are the lost souls notched up on the bed sheets of our silence. There are nine embroidered developmental stages of human growth in the womb which reflect that a person is being formed. The paper headlines declare what these lost lives would have become for our society. Finally, the pins are of an actual foetal child`s feet at ten weeks old-perfectly formed.
