  • The attention to detail and space-age subject matter remind me of Rosenquist, even though these are b+w.

      totally reminded me of robert longo. but i’m not sure if it reminded me of it in a good way. regardless nice hand skills . ..

        After a quick amount of research, (looking at the 2 artist sites) you can see the dates of the exhibitions where these works first appeared – Jonathan Zawada 2008, Robert Longo 2009. Blogs tend to take a little while to catch up on the latest works… If Longo’s were posted before Zawada’s, doesn’t mean his were first.

      • blame it on the collective unconcious

    • ALEX IKHIDE

      LOVE this comment!!! sums up the work here perfectly ^^,

  • ben

    yeah, definitely a lot of great stuff going on here. A couple of these, however, aren’t given room to breath on their own, outside of the Longo comparison.

  • oceanchild

    i love the use of the helmet as a source of reflection. very cool.

  • cool stuff :]

  • Urrrica

    The last one just knocked my conceptual cock back in on itself. Nice!

  • Ben

    The picture that appeared to be a bunzi tree with the streak really fit the picture well

Hand-Embroidered Photographs by Artist Diane Meyer

American artist Diane Meyer questions the ability of photography to accurately preserve our memory and experience, highlighting its tendency to obscure the past by transforming history into an object of nostalgia. Embroidering directly onto photographs taken along the former path of the Berlin wall, see more images from “Berlin” below.

You can also click here to see our previous post on Meyer’s series of hand-embroidered family photos, “Time Spent That Might Otherwise Be Forgotten,” a selection of which is on display at the George Eastman Museum in New York until Janurary 29th.
