Hope in Our Darkest Hour

Amy Morris

Supima cotton and Bamboo Stellina with Banana Silk inlays

The idea for the piece started with an inspiration of a dark universe with bursts of rainbows provided by a friend. At the time, the fourth anniversary of the loss of our baby, Hope, during pregnancy was fast approaching.The world was gripped by a pandemic. And politics and racism were tearing apart our nation. The bright spots in this dark universe led me to think of my rainbow baby, our son born after our loss; the advances scientists were making toward a vaccine for COVID-19; and the possibility of a life without our current president and what it could mean for marginalized communities. This represents the yearning for those positive changes and how, even after we move through difficulties, parts of the darkness remain. During despair, there is always hope.
