Artist Statement

Light at the End of the Tunnel is created to record our great concern and uncertainty at the beginning of the pandemic. We all were longing for the light at the end of the tunnel, and stitching this work helped Masako feel a sense of calm. It gave her hope, strength and resilience. Blackwork embroidery technique is used in colour.
