So, I spent today experimenting with embroidery over the top of my self portraits. The portraits are printed on 6×4 Photo paper which gives them a rather glossy, stiff finish. Piercing the photo paper with the needle and thread was a sort of therapy in itself as it created a sense of fragility within to a finished and structured piece. I want to experiment with colours and textures more. I also think it would look a lot more effective if the thread wasn’t as neat, almost ragged looking and more expressive. Which overall is the effect I am trying to create for my finished piece.
My goal for this year is to get my art out there. I am finishing my Fine Art degree this year so I wanted to try and get my work out there for people to see so I set up a few online stores with just a few of my latest prints.
I would really appreciate it if you could check it out.
Also, I would like to apologise for not posting as much as I would like to, I’m currently in the process of writing my dissertation but I will do my best to keep updating my blog. Thanks again, Jayde xo
