fiber fun...

another awesome artist participating in Forget me not Emily Eibel.
Her rough but sensitive appliques really pull me in...they have a strong narrative...

But they also lend just a little bit of fright... there are plenty of images with some blood and gore...which is what I love about it. Emily uses this simple,traditional, seemingly harmless practice to make some disturbing vignettes and explore contemporary issues.

You can also check out her blog here.
Plus she is another Brooklynite so she must be awesome.

a little creepy, but still impressively realistic work with needle and thread.
