Satoru Aoyama is known for his photo-realistic embroidery as depicted in his series, “Embroiderers”. However, we really do like his newer work incorporating found objects particularly those in his studio. Born in Japan the textile artist received a Bachelor of Arts degree in London and went on for his masters in Chicago. He works with an old Singer sewing machine to create these meticulously embroidered works. The process of making is important to the artist and he hopes that in viewing his work, people will appreciate the embroidery and ultimately question the relationship between the images presented and the process of making.
