Barack Obama US Presidents Embroidery Art Fiber Activist 44
This Hurts (Barack)
acrylic and embroidery on fabric, poly-fil
7" x 2.5"

This Hurts is a small hand embroidered and painted fabric doll of Barack Obama. With Obama as a symbol for what our democracy should aspire to be, always striving for a more perfect union, the doll is a visual representation of the pain inflicted onto our democracy by the current regressive administration. The poly-fil guts of the doll have been ripped out, simply saying that this hurts, not just me, but everyone who has fought for our democracy in one way or another.
