Columbia, 2022

Series of 7 cross stitch embroidered statements mounted in spray-painted gold frames, various sizes
Cross stitch is a traditional medium typically used by women in home decor. If the piece includes typography, it tends to include generic statements such as "Bless this Home", or Bible verses. Columbia reclaims the medium in a way that communicates surprising information about the experience of being a woman in the U.S.
