i just completed this embroidery last night. it is part of a new series of embroideries on paper drawn directly from my family photographs.
in this series of work, i am investigating the interchangeability of spaces and common acts, such as a birthday celebration. these acts and celebrations are so personal and important to us on the individual level, yet are so common and repeatable on the larger, human scale. i am fascinated by this relationship, and i am attempting to create work taken directly from a photographic moment in time which no longer exists. the moments are personal and nostalgic to me, yet relatable to a broader audience.
