Artist Crush: Jazmin Berakha

May 25th, 2011 · 12 Comments

Embroidery by Buenos Aires artist Jazmin Berakha via wolf eyebrows. What’s amazing to me about embroidered art (and other media with craft roots) is when it is so technically and visually complex (like Berakha’s) that it is easily mistaken for painting. It’s important to recognize that artists like Berakha could easily tell their stories in pencil or paint but instead choose the much more pain-staking, time-consuming path of embroidery with all it’s history and connotation.





The artist has a show opening tomorrow at Heskin Contemporary Gallery in NYC with Nicola Ginzel, another artist working in needlepoint.
