THREAD AS LINE, FABRIC AS FORM

Bell Bodice

Bell Bodice

What appear to be lines of colored ink and brush strokes of paint are in fact cotton and silk thread embroidery by Kay Khan. Vessels, three dimensional figurative pieces, wall hangings and apparel are all basic forms that become the starting point for imaginative and obsessive embroidered fine art.

This show will open on August 6 and run through September 30, 2013
