Embroidery.

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.

Just a sneak peek into my latest artwork for my university course Final degree show as I am now in my final year of the Fine Art course. Any feedback would be great, thankyou. xo
