2018, punch needle embroidery on monk’s cloth, 26” x 21”.
** This piece is currently on view at Open Studios Kingston.
The “Sculpture Gardens” series of punch needle embroidery pieces arose from a desire to create a body of work that referenced elements of the artist's educational background in Humanities and Art History. Rendered in a style influenced by contemporary illustration, the series references classical Greek and Roman sculptures of mythological and historical women, such as the Three Graces or Dido of Carthage, and examines the changing notions of feminine beauty and ideals over time.
As it is a handmade object, it may have some imperfections -- which just add to its character.
I am also open to working with you on a commissioned piece similar to this one to fit your specifications.
