some more sewing on skin. but this project I, without a doubt, love. Spanish artist David Cata has an ongoing series called under the skin. In this project he sews portraits of loved ones onto his hand documenting it through photography and video.
The idea behind the project is that these are the people that have "marked" him and are "interwoven" into his life. The reverence and honoring of others is quite potetic and lovely. He also included his "unsewn" hand in the work so you can see the lack of volence in his act and instead the VERY careful attention.
a variation on the project.
All of his work is lovely and all about the connections we have to others. His paintings and sculptures are no less wonderful then this project.
However his website is SOOOOO slow and might drive you mad.
