IT'S THE SAME

This series of works function primarily as a form of concealment, adopting pre-existing images and abandoning its context completely. By sewing over these news articles, I am suggesting that all power has been removed- that an image without its context is merely an image.

Sometimes the embroidery is done with great care and meticulous planning and other times, carelessly with little control. The variety of colors and their vibrancy are deliberately used to suggest how these images can be simultaneously beautiful and distasteful, cynical yet hopeful.
