Your nothing but an ugly C%#!

Looking at verbal abuse, I have decorated a cushion with a phrase a discovered in my research. The idea is supposed to be a subtle suggestion of abuse in what appears to be a normal home. Only when you look close do you notice the abuse which has been hidden in daily life.

I used a lilac thread as a subtle colour rather than something that stood out as often abuse is not seen in the home by outsiders. Unfortunately the lilac was lost in the purple flower so I might have to add a darker shade to try and emphasis 'nothing'.

The typography idea came from previous experiments around the start of March using the word 'Whorebag'
