Habitat is also part of the Cambodia series. All the pieces in this series are based on the shape of the map of Cambodia, which is the last remaining habitat of the nearly extinct Bengal Florican, victims of habitat fragmentation.
The richly colored feathers in this piece are created from recycled plastic bags screen printed with images of endangered birds and overprinted with text in endangered languages such as Yiddish, Shorthand, numerous indigenous languages and excerpts of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring.
My studio in Lake Chapala supports several local Mexican women and their families. I need their help to build large-scale art and sculpture that I exhibit in museums and galleries in the US and Mexico. When you buy products on Deborah Kruger Designs, your money is also going directly to support and empower women!
