Stephen Sollins

The embroidery work of artist Stephen Sollins is new to me. He works in numerous media, but I missed seeing this series of needlework when it was exhibited in 2003. Sollins "unworked" cross-stitch samplers, and then re-worked the ground fabric in the same number of stitches and colors as the original composition (a ghostly outline remains), reducing the work down to condensed blocks of color.
