Another batch of portraits by St. Louis-based artist Cayce Zavaglia (previously featured here). Originally trained as a painter, Zavaglia’s embroideries are all meticulously hand sewn using a personally developed technique that resembles the brushstrokes of classical oil painting.
She also creates large format acrylic paintings based on the reverse side of her embroidered works, drawing attention to that which is traditionally hidden from view. See more images below.
TWOONE’s “100 Faces” project is a collection of 100 mixed media portraits created over a two year period. Recently exhibited in Melbourne, the Berlin-based artist is currently working on a book combining the artwork, reference photos and sketches into a book. Check out more images from “100 FACES” below!
