As a child I vividly remember my mother painstakingly embroidering traditional creations that would eventually collect dust in the attic. If her embroidery had been anything like Sewnews by Lauren DiCiocci, however, that surely would not have been the case.

Inspired by interesting objects, Sewnews by Lauren DiCiocci focuses particularly on the medium of newspapers. According to the artist herself, "the tedious handiwork and obsessive care I employ to create my work aims to remind the viewer of these simple but intimate pieces of everyday life and to provoke a pang of nostalgia for the familiar physicality of these objects."
