Aftermath blanc- hand pulled screen print edition of 20
This print is of the image I designed for the Remembrance range at the Imperial war Museum 2014 to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of WW1. I was given a selection of different artefacts from the IWM collections and the stories of the people behind them and was asked to pick one as my inspiration. I was also given the poem ‘Aftermath’ by Siegfried Sassoon as a starting point. I was really drawn to a small bag embroidered with wild roses made by a wounded soldier, Charles Frampton in hospital. Sadly, Charles died from his wounds and this small, poignant little scrap of embroidery was left behind. What horrors he must have seen, but he took comfort and inspiration in his most desperate hour from nature. This is something we see time and time again. Natures signifies hope and renewal, something I can really relate to in my work. Charles’s wild roses are woven into my circular design that symbolises an eternal spring.
thanks to the IWM for their kind permission for me to use this image. You can see more about the IWM on the page on 'Design work and other things'
