Figure Legend

I have a show of embroidery up at the Curiosity Shoppe in San Francisco! Here are some shots of the installation taken by the wonderful owners, Lauren and Derek.

Here I draw the name of the show directly on the wall (!!!):
Some cyanotypes before hanging:And the beautiful treatment Lauren and Derek showed some legend-less embroidered figures:
Finally finished:Also there, and embroidered: 1970's pillowcase safari animals labeled with their scientific names, a portrait of Darwin, other fake ecosystems. Some crochet specimens are there too.

Figure Legend is up until the 4th of March.

Love this. I just picked up my first embroidery book and ideas is beginning to brew. This is truly inspirational.
