Inspired by a vision I had as a child, once I learned about climate change, "Embroidered" captures what a past version of myself envisioned would help fix the ozone layer. This vision consisted of sewing up the ripping ozone layer using a thread and needle, as though the sky itself was a piece of fabric. Afifa Bari is a Pakistani-Canadian contemporary realist oil painter and textile artist based in Toronto. Through representational art, she examines the contemporary world through the lens of capitalism, uncovering consumerist values in her work.
