Things Unseen #5: Auras

350.00

Colored thread hand embroidered directly into a detailed black & white photograph of a thistle plant.

Things Unseen is a series of artwork that combines photography and embroidery. The colored thread personifies creativity & imagination, tracking how it would interact with the world if we could see it.

I turned the photographs in these series black and white because the absence of color changes the images just enough to see them in a new light. It is in realms of observing what is normally overlooked that creativity and imagination reside. In this way, the black and white images offer themselves as spaces where invisible forces become tangible.
