Bead Works ~ Football Chants

This series of paintings were beaded texts mounted on velvet canvases, as part of the Bead Works Series . The exhibition coincided with The World Cup in Germany (2006), with the exhibition taking place in Berlin at Gallerie-33, FON. The texts themselves all came from the chants/songs that were song by one nation’s football supporters to either the other teams supporters or team. The mix of often crude and insulting texts were in contrast to the beautiful appearance of the paintings themselves.
