Sewn Drawings by Jessica Wohl
- Luca Rädler
Jessica Wohl is a Tennessee-based trained illustrator, who is now working in the fields of drawing, painting, collage, installation and performance. Her work evolves around the concept of home and it’s residents. She proves that looks can be deceiving with the use of drawing and sewing on family based imagery and by that disorders these representations of domestic perfection and happiness.
In her series „Sewn Drawing“ she takes on embroidery to mask the characters on found photographs and digital prints and uses sewing to embody the metaphor of the human need to „keep it together“ and prevent life from „ripping apart at the seams“.
