Some artists use extreme detail to bring meaning to a masterpiece, but the Jessica Wohl 'Sewn Drawings' offer the idea that a lot of deeper messages can be captured in a creative cross-stitch.
Wohl reconfigured portraits by applying embroidered embellishments over faces, bodies and backgrounds in family photos or singular subject snaps. It seems like the mutilations are somewhat metaphorical as they draw out the eyes, smiles and stoic expressions of the stitch-victims in the vintage looking captures. Each take is actually a piece of found photography, which gives you a more interesting perspective on what Wohl wants each character to portray, as there is no previous emotional connection to the artist.
The Jessica Wohl Sewn Drawings may look half creepy but are fully captivating.
