Embroidery isn’t exactly known for being super hip. Ranging from your grandmother’s cross stitching to traditional hand woven rugs, it may be intricate, beautiful, and interesting, but on point, modern, and boundary pushing? Less likely. It seems then that Jenny Hart likes to defy convention. The L.A. based artist is known for her hand-stitched portraits of famous icons and iconography. And despite the simplicity of the medium (cloth, coloured floss), the images bear a very recognizable resemblance to their original living forms. Her attention to detail can be observed in the hair of her subjects, whether portrayed as tightly curly, loose and wavy or short and straight, each stitch and colour is carefully planned for maximum impact.
