In the city where I live there are several "art collectives"- where people get together regularly and make art together. I take part in one of these. Since my love of craft is equal to my love of art (and part of the groups manifesto is that is really ALL art anyway...)- I took small parts of different paintings and reproduced them in needlepoint. When we showed, my pieces were dispalyed alongside of the paintings. They were mounted on wood to be hung. They got a great response and most actually sold. Luckily- I got photos of most.
Thanks for looking- have a nice Sunday.
This one is called "brothers." It was the most popular. So much so that I ended up reproducing it twice more to sell.
This one is "butter." It is my favorite, mostly because of all the work I put into it.
This is "urinal." It is made from a photo of a urinal that one of the collective members painted on a nightclub wall next to a real urinal.(The group was in the club painting the backdrops for a play that was being put on there- the urinal eventually was painted over. boohoo)
This is a embroidery of the collectives 'mascot'- fleshy the elephant. Yes, he resembles male anatomy, but cute nonetheless.
Again, thanks for looking.
