Embroidered Photographs By Melissa Zexter

Melissa Zexter combines embroidery with photography. She sews by hand directly onto photographs she has taken, combining a traditional practical skill, embroidery with a modern and mass reproducible process, photography. The artist’s fundamental concern is to explore the photograph’s material status as three-dimensional object as well as to examine issues of identity, memory and technology.
