Adventures with Stitch- Chuck Close

1 Comment

This workshop looks at the work of Chuck Close, the American artist who paints in the photo realism style. His work is divided into grids with each square painted separately. hen seen close to, the work looks abstract, but when seen from a distance, it transforms into a portrait. I have adapted this idea to pixilated a photo and draw each square separately. These are then stitched individually to form an image. I have also looked at individual squares from his work and made collages from them. These too can be individually stitched.

  1. Janet to my delight I managed to twist and shape the piece I did at the Embroidery Guild workshop ‘tuck, gather, roll’ into a finished vessel. Great fun thank you. Shall I send a pic? Penny harris
