A Common Thread – Over The Rainbow


Artist Statement

From the series a “A Common Thread”, hand embroidery on real roses. The series is a play on classic flower embroidery, but where the flowers are the canvas and not the subject. It’s a celebration of our common denominators, and place focus on matters that unite us instead of divide us. The ballad “Over the rainbow” was composed by Harold Arlen with lyrics by Yip Harburg, published in 1939, at a time when the Jews were coming under increased hostility. The song is about hope, that the bad times will one day be over. It has been a symbol throughout some of the darkest times in history, from the Holocaust to the lgbtq battle for equality. The feeling of hope that the “Over the Rainbow” convey is a feeling we all can relate to.
