artest statement by harry (deborahs class
My artist’s statement for my quilt piece.
My quilt peace shows bleeding Kansas.
My peace shows Kansas the bullet hole and the red around it shows that people in Kansas are dieing in the war and the crack through Kansas means that Kansas is separated some people in Kansas want Kansas to be a free state and some want it to be a slave state.
Inside Kansas are little boxes showing stuff that happened in bleeding Kansas like James brown sneaking at night to a slave quarters to give them weapons and a protest in the city with signs as if we want our slave state and Kansas shall not be free.
There is a bird on one side of the crack representing freedom and chains on the other representing slavery to show how much it was torn apart
