Maurizio Anzeri’s embroidered vintage photographs

Maurizio Anzeri’s embroidered vintage photographs | Fibre in Art | Scoop.it

"Maurizio Anzeri is a London based Italian artist, who works with discarded portraits which he reinvents through creative needlework and embroidery.  He uses synthetic hair as his thread of choice, which he stitches and sews on vintage photographs to create complex geometrical patterns and structures. Although rich in colors and extremely animated, his works are at the same time uncanny: they deprive the characters of their original individuality by overlaying mysterious veils and masks on the portraits. Nevertheless, Anzeri emphasizes certain facial features (like the eyes or the mouth – salient cues of social relevance) which manage to effectively radiate new expressions."

Fiji Postcards 3D: Fijian Domestic Activities 1890-1939

Fiji Postcards 3D: Fijian Domestic Activities 1890-1939 | Fibre in Art | Scoop.it

"In this photo they are hand-painting a piece of Cakaudrove masi bola (see Ewins 1982, Fijian Artefacts, for a full description). The fact that the cloth appears complete is not necessarily misleading, since these cloths are enhanced after the design is established by a form of "varnishing" similar to that used by Western oil-painters. However the "tools" they are pretending to use appear to be merely sticks. In fact, they would be using the frayed ends of segments of the pandanus fruit, such as are found on any beach in the Pacific, as small paint brushes. Again, the compliant models did not correct the error — always assuming they knew, which if they were "town girls" from Suva they probably did not."
