Enjoy!

Enjoy!
 

Amaze!
 

Believe!
 

Be Incredible!


Don't wait for the storm to pass...


Learn to dance in the rain!


Six pieces of work, densly machine stitched thread paintings, finally finished on Friday afternoon with nearly 48 hours to go. No sweat, she says with tongue firmly placed in cheek. It was cutting it fine even for me! But the work is up...
 
Taking inspiration from the new venue and the many examples of graffiti in the surrounding area of Hoxton and Shoreditch, I chose to explore those internal monologues or affirmations we use to communicate to ourselves, shouted out for all to see.



The exhibition, Prism at Hoxton Arches, is ready for opening tomorrow and looks great. I'm thrilled to be included in such a wonderful exhibition where there is so much fantastic work from people I admire. It is humbling!
 

If you can make the trip to London over the next couple of weeks I urge you to pop in. Hoxton Arches is in Cremer Street, right next to Hoxton overground station, on several bus routes along Kingsland Road or just a 15 minute walk from either Old Street or Liverpool Street stations. It's worth it!

  2. Gina, how I wish that i could visit this exhibition!

    Your embroidery is so vivid and its message is Positive. I know where I would want to take you to lunch.

    I also wish that you could have been with me at that NYC Dance Parade last Saturday. Wow!

    Let's celebrate the arts all over the globe. xo

  3. These look amazing Gina! So bright, and I love the graffiti style you've incorporated. Most of the graffiti in my town is just passing through on the train cars ;) You must be relieved that you got them finished with SO much time to spare... ha!

  6. Wow Gina, these embroideries are mindboggling. I can't even begin to imagine how you made them! I hope you have put your feet up in the time you had from finishing early. x

  10. Amazing! I think you have some sort of magical machine there Gina!! Either that or just hours of very hard graft (and I think I know which it is!) x Jo
