As I looked at the pieces from Africa and thought about it, there was no one piece that stuck out in my mind. My thoughts went to the continent as a whole. There are wars and bloodshed and the people are torn. There are sides to be taken and enemies are made. The heartache of war, the clash of people, government, and the lack of help and medicine.
It was this thought that led me to think of Africa as torn. In my piece I put two “tares” in to it, and then behind the tares I used granulation to represent the people.
