Adding a completely new dimension to photography, Brooklyn-based artist Melissa Zexter combines photography and hand-stitched embroidery to create stunning and unique mixed medium photography.
By layering her images with texture, color and motifs, Zexter is able to spin a whole new narrative to her mixed medium photography series and give her images a lot more depth.
"For me, sewing was another way to build up a surface and to build upon the content of my photographs. I loved the meditative process of sewing – it was in such contrast to the technologically more immediate art of photography," says Zexter.
Using both digital and gelatin silver print photographs as her base, the artist thinks of these photographs as something from the past which she brings to the present with the threads she uses to embellish the image.
