Embroidery on linen
160 cm x 60 cm
When talking about my artworks I often say that making a portrait is like getting to know someone in a new way. When making a self portrait this doesn’t change. Building your own face one stitch at a time, piercing your features with a needle over and over again changes the way you look at the face looking back at you.
I have never embroidered anything before this self portrait. The accuracy of the technique is irrelevant when the yarn is my paint and the needle is my brush.
