'A conversation about religion and co-existence.'


[Redeem is an art work/project that is] ... 'a representation of followers of different religions ... a metaphor of oneness of the world itself ... each colour represents a different religion: white stands for Christianity, red and purple for [different Hindu] castes, yellow for Muslims, green for other religions ... yellow represents the sun red represents the red earth, purple [is] used in ceremonies and green for plants, blue sky, white air ... [there’s a connection between] peoples' spiritual relation to the land ... stitches [are] influenced by Orao tattoo[s] ... stitching also obscure[s] certain information and associations that lay underneath the dotting.'
