British Military Camo Tapestry
128 x 128 cm
DescriptionPart of the War Boutique ‘Cut-Out Camo’ tapestry series, inspired by Matisse’s applique techniques, and incorporating original military fabrics from the artist’s personal collection.
‘Drug War’ superimposes the last two MoD camos ever woven on British looms, both in service during the early Afghan conflict. This tactile wall-hanging subverts some of the cultural iconography accompanying that particular international incident.
War Boutique enjoys commenting on the commentary of war.
