“The brief for this project was a commentary on war and the card I chose was the Queen of Hearts, my immediate thought was “the queen of broken hearts” and that really set the tone for this piece.
For the execution of it I was inspired to return to my love of silk screening, I thought limiting myself to black and red would force me into a strong graphic image.”
