The first of a few gifts I made for some friends. They were meant as Christmas presents but life got in the way, BUT FINALLY I finished them, so there are many close up shots on the horizon :) Thanks for waiting guys!
Drawing with cotton thread is really thrilling. It's taxing, forces you to think about your materials and makes you take a leap of faith that little things really matter. Exploring the cultural and historical connotations of embroidery through photography is something I'm really interested in for future projects, which is a bit of a holla back at Georgia O'Keefe for wanting people to look more closely at small details.
Close up images of the threadwork, particularly the back, really makes them threatening in a way...? hmmmmm.
