About this piece:
About this artist:
Adipocere (Australia) developed an interest in embroidery as art in 2014 after he cross-stitched an homage to the film Alien. From there he has created his own visuals inspired by a fascination with the macabre, combining themes of innocence with an unsettling and sinister melancholy, referring to many of his works as ‘emotional self-portraiture’. An environmental science student, flora, and fauna related theory often influence his work as does a desire to utilize materials that are more sustainable. Working predominantly on natural linen, he has occasionally stitched temporary works into the epidermis layer of his left hand.
