Embroidered Landscapes by Michelle Kingdom

Michelle Kingdom is a LA based artist, with her masterful series of thread and needle. She explores psychological landscapes illuminating thoughts left unspoken.
Michelle Kingdom- ” I create tiny worlds in thread to capture elusive yet persistent inner voices. Literary snippets, memories, personal mythologies, and art historical references inform the imagery; fused together, these influences explore relationships, domesticity and self-perception. Symbolism and allegory lay bare dynamics of aspiration and limitation, expectation and loss, belonging and alienation, truth and illusion”.
” I use thread as a sketching tool in order to simultaneously honor and undermine this tradition. Beauty parallels melancholy, as conventional stitches acquiesce to the fragile and expressive”.
