stitch spectacular!

i've been really into embroidery for quite some time now, but i haven't quite explored it as much as i'd like. which is why i'm really excited about the stitch spectular show! not only is it taking place right here in savannah, it's being juried by some really amazing people; grace bonney (of design sponge) and kate bingaman-burt (of obsessive consumption ) and the surface design association will award the “best in show.” they just moved the deadline back until october 31st, which is great for me because i JUST started working on my submission. yipes!


someone i care about.

i think about this skit, like, pretty much everyday.


i'm feeling a bit frustrated. or maybe just stubborn.

st. fabiola.

over the last two decades belgian artist francis alÿs has assembled a significant collection of nearly identical paintings and other depictions of fourth-century saint fabiola. all are based on a renowned, but lost, portrait by nineteenth-century french academic painter jean-jacques henner. gathered from flea markets, antique shops, and private collections throughout europe and the americas, the collection offers a window onto aesthetic, sociological, and theological values over the past century and more. alÿs's group includes more than three hundred fabiola portraits, all of them copies of a lost original: most are paintings, and there are several versions in needlepoint, wood relief, and other materials as well.
