Surrealist embroidery never looked so good

Surrealist embroidery never looked so good

The embroideries created by California based artist Michelle Kingdom portray an alternate reality. With some works showing more common scenes of a wedding or a teenager listening to records, other works reference a painter-like quality such as seen in the works of van Gogh or Monet.

And yet other works have a stark, dreamlike quality, such as in the piece Life Will Divide Us, where dancers stand among a flock or suspended birds. In another piece, Duties of Gossamer, a crowd of similarly dressed girls stands interwoven and interconnected as the architecture of thread that is often hidden on the back of a piece, is brought into the image itself, thus creating striking web-like line work.
