Mr X Stitch presents The Cutting (& Stitching) Edge – March 25, 2009
|Share the love...||
Welcome to the very first Cutting (& Stitching) Edge post here on Craftster!
I’m Mr X Stitch and I’ll be your guide to the best in contemporary embroidery. Each week I’ll showcase someone who is rocking the world of embroidery and textiles.
So, with great pleasure, may I introduce Logan McLain.
Logan has an MA in Textile Design and has won several awards in Ireland for his work. His machine embroidered works have a wicked sense of humour and well as a high standard of workmanship.
His contributions to a 2008 exhibition entitled “Faith in Form” are fine examples of contemporary embroidery. The irreverence of his work highlights some of the idiosyncracies of mainstream religion.
Clearly Logan is very talented and has a lot to offer. I really like the way he plays with negative space in some of his works. Sensitivity and feeling echo through his works, and it will be really interesting to see what he produces next.
You can find out more about him by visiting his website.
Mr X Stitch is a manbroiderer, cross stitch designer and runs www.mrxstitch.com,
the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet.
He can often be found hanging out on the Craftster needlecraft boards.
