Han Cao
"Wallflowers: Shrinking violet", Surreal Embroidered Flower on Vintage Photo

2020

$750

About

This brightly colored mixed media artwork titled "Wallflowers: Shrinking violet" is an original artwork by Han Cao made of embroidery thread and a vintage photograph. Using colorful thread, Han Cao hand-embroidered a flower onto this vintage photograph. This piece measures 11"h x 9"w framed. This piece ships in the pictured white frame with an acrylic back to show the back of the embroidery. She uses embroidery to create new narratives for long-forgotten photographs and postcards found at flea markets and antique shops from around the world. All embroidery on the artwork is done by hand, directly onto the original found image. Her art combines fibers of embroidery thread with the paper fibers of each photograph to connect with the fibers of our own being – as the added dimension of each work challenges our self-identity and personal connection with unfamiliar people and places.
