I can go on and on about the incredible work of LA based artist, Michelle Kingdom. She embroiders scenes of people in mythological or ritualistic scenarios, engaged in unknown actions or in vaguely defined relationships.
My work explores psychological landscapes, illuminating thoughts left unspoken. I create tiny worlds in thread to capture elusive yet persistent inner voices. Literary snippets, memories, personal mythologies, and art historical references inform the imagery; fused together, these influences explore relationships, domesticity and self-perception. Symbolism and allegory lay bare dynamics of aspiration and limitation, expectation and loss, belonging and alienation, truth and illusion. – Michelle Kingdom
