intrigued but unsure...

I find the work of artist Rob Wynne very interesting. Most specifically his "embroidered paintings" in which he creates pigment print with embroidered text on canvas. And from the looks of it, the embroidery is machine done.

I sort of wonder what his motivation is, what conceptually is he playing with by incorporating the embroidered language with antique and/or commercial images.

I am one who always wants to understand art. And though in a way I am visually very pleased by these works. My satisfaction is left blank as I am not sure that I get it.

But I do love his mirrored glass text pieces- they are quite unique and lovely.

What do you think?
