Singapore-based artist Izziyana Suhaimi is known for her fashion illustrations with embroidered accents but we find ourselves equally drawn to her stitch studies shown above. Her artist statement clearly explains her use of embroidery:
â€œEmbroidery for me is a quiet and still act, where eachÂ stitch represents a moment passed. The building of stitches then becomes a representation of time passing and the final work is like a physical manifestation of time – a time object. Each stitch is also a recording of the maker’s thoughts andÂ emotions.”
“I enjoyÂ the duality of embroidery, in its movements of stabbing, cutting, covering, building, repairing, taking apart. Every stitch made seems to unfold a story and withhold it at the same time.â€
