  1. Artist: Stacey Page

    These whimsical portraits from Stacey Page seem to capture any hidden desires of the subject, whom wear their superhero guise so proudly. Her embroidered work is exceptional, carefully sewn through small-scale photographs.

  2. Artist: Hagar Vardimon-van Heummen

    Simply put, artist Hagar Vardimon-van Heummen proclaims ‘love paper, love thread and adore the combination.’ In this lovely series titled Lonely HousesHagar expands from the familiar to extraordinary works of art. I particularly love how the angle of the thread mutually competes with the angles of the structures.

  3. Artist: Gabriel Dawe

    Gabriel Dawe’s thread installations are magnificent. Using all the colors of the rainbow, crossing and warping the threads creating illusions and depth. I love how the piece changes depending on your point of view.

  4. Artist: Anne Lindberg

    October 24, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Thread is such a simple, common place object; lately, I’ve been enjoying the abundance of artist and crafters who have been pushing the limits of this versatile material. Anne Lindberg has been using thread to create linear drawings, ominous installations and massive sculptures. Her installation pieces appear to float in space as they freely pass through the gallery walls. 

  5. Artist: Lauren DiCioccio

    Lauren DiCioccio is an amazing embroiderer and sculptor, her series sewnnews applies unusual colors and shapes in a painterly way to bring new life to the familiar aesthetic of the newspaper.  She uses the same process with other objects both antiquated and common.
