The Art of Thread
9th July 2021
We’ve always said that embroidery is as much an art form as painting or sculpture. But when you combine painting with embroidery, the artistic results are sublime. This is precisely how we would describe the art of Sarah Detweiler, a mixed media artist who combines thread with paint to exquisite effect.
Sarah creates mysterious portraits of women who are front and centre while at the same time, completely hidden. In this way, she explores anonymity and universality associated with the feminine. The combination of oil, watercolour, gouache and embroidery is breathtakingly unique.
