Sewn News is a project by San Franciso-based artist Lauren DiCioccio that involves sewing fabric and thread atop issues of the New York Times. “I select a photograph from the paper; usually a strong image suggestive of power, leadership or communication; and embroider the image onto the fabric, applying colors in a painterly way and layering line and thread,” she explains. “The tedious handiwork and obsessive care I employ to create my work aims to remind the viewer of these simple but intimate pieces of everyday life and to provoke a pang of nostalgia for the familiar physicality of these objects.”
The results are stunning.
