Great Men //In a series of work titled 'Great Men' Dumas creates  a group of portraits made in response to Russia’s anti-gay legislation.Dumas celebrates the achievements of these men which have not been suitably recognised as a result of their sexuality.To link this into my own work I could address the issue of gender equality. This would successfully link with the feminine process of embroidery and the material hair.
