running sutures

I am completely fascinated by the recent embroidery work of french artist cécile jarsaillon. using images from a safety manual as inspiration and a backdrop, she satin stitches over the photos leaving just enough space for the range of color in the image to show through. Jarsaillon’s work is currently showing in the “sur les fils” exhibit at the musée international d'art modeste in Sete, France, until may 2010.


  1. I can't even believe that's embroidery.

  2. I love the second one from the top. the children look so sweet with the girl in a cute little blue dress and then there is blood gushing out of her leg.

    i love the art you feature by the way. it is so fun to check in and learn about a new artist :)
