Kate Kretz‘s needle art is amazing. And I mean that literally. When I look at her work, my mouth falls open and I go into a kind of trance, enthralled by her concepts and captivated by her exquisite technique. You can see her art in person right now in Miami. Her news release says,
“This Sharp World…”, a solo exhibition by artist Kate Kretz, opens this week at Hardcore Art Contemporary Space in Miami. The exhibition features embroideries made with human hair, edgy embroidery employing extensive stumpwork and dense layers of French Knots, as well as paintings incorporating embroidery and silverpoint drawings on found silver objects. The show continues through June 2nd.
You can see the show’s catalog online. But if you’re near Miami, you’d be a fool to miss this chance to see the work in person.
