Norma Slabbert is a writer and quiltmaker from New Zealand. Her quilts are a documentation of our time. They represent the life she lives and the things she cares about.

The Colour of War
Retail Price: NFS
Dimensions: 129×133 cm
Statement: The war images that flicker across our screens give us a chilling look at the destruction of war. We witness anger, violence, and bloodshed, as lives, cities, infrastructure, and nature, are destroyed by relentless shelling on civilians. The grim images remain with us always, but the human trauma remains unseen.
