Han Cao
"Common threads 2", Hand-Embroidered Vintage Photograph, Colorful, Surrealism

2020

$1,000

About

This brightly colored mixed media artwork titled "Common threads 2" is an original artwork by Han Cao made of embroidery thread, vintage photograph, and tape. Han Cao hand embroidered with colorful thread onto this vintage photograph. This piece measures 19"h x 11"w framed. 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.
