Hard to ignore these paintings with thread created by French artist Julie Sarloutte. The graduate of the National School of Fine Arts in Paris focuses on embroidery to create these detailed pieces where the individual stitches appear to be paint strokes. Her work draws inspiration from what the world news is covering. In her own words she writes:
“In my work I mix elements of folk and everyday imagery, often violent: disasters, war, urban repression … omnipresent in the media. Reflecting the fascination of the screen, I take the time to embroider what usually happens in a split second.”
