MORE (i know) hand cut multicolour stencil screenprints!
(4 colour - cant really see the colours very well on here, but they look different in real life.)
This time relating to the caging of chickens, in specific terms, battery farming methods, in which each bird has at MOST an A4 piece of paper sized area to stand, with multiple (upto 21) birds crammed into tiny cages with nothing but wire to stand on, their beaks painfully removed and never allowed to see sunlight in their pitiful 6 week life, battery farming is a method that turns the farming of chickens into a machine for producing money at no cost for the animals welfare. This must stop.
Hand cut stencil screenprints relating to the awful treatment of ducks and geese in the production of Foie Gras, a horrific practice for a 'delicacy' which i cant believe still continues - force feeding the animals multiple times a day til their livers swell to up to 10 times their original size, as well as being kept in filthy conditions unable to move, they have a metal tube over a foot long shoved down their throats, sometimes with such force it tears the throat causing the birds to suffocate on their own vomit.
