April Young 'Hope Beyond Strength' paper clay 38cmx33cm
‘Hope Beyond Strength’ incorporates the following quotes: "Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek" by Barack Obama and "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So... sail away from the safe harbour. Explore. Dream. Discover" quoting Mark Twain. The surface motifs include guns, butterflies, and sunglasses, representing purging ourselves of old demons, regeneration, and shading ourselves from a hopefully bright future, respectively.
