Hands, ANg

Printed on muslin machine stitched, little paper flower, attach with an eyelet.


about the piece.
This is a picture taken of Andrew Joseph's hand and his mama, Angie, two days after he died. ANg talks about the piece, "I remember holding his little hand and rubbing his little fingers over and over and over again. I wish I had kissed his fingers, I may have but I don't remember. I have so many regrets and in the end I am left with pictures . I miss him so much."

about the artist.
Alter My World (screen name) aka ANg began her art journey one year after the death of her newborn son, Andrew Joseph. Her art gives her a voice, whether its her grief expression or her happy times, it gives her a sense of self and of the hope of healing. Art at first became a voice of grief and sorrow, through the years it has become so much more than that. It now has periods of laughter and brightness and when she needs to, she arts about loss and grief and sadness.
Her art can be seen here.
