disparate trajectories...

i find these works by artist amelia bauer extremely compelling. more can be found here. in these pieces, she's using traditional, decorative arts such as needle point and lace to depict explosive scenes from hollywood films. i am most drawn to the metaphor created through the juxtaposition of violent cinematic scenes, painstakingly depicted in needlepoint onto pillows.
this show is opening at the cairo gallery in seattle thursday, july 23.
