"Over the Yellows, Under the Greens" by Taylor Rose
– Hiding in Plain Sight –
Camouflage features seventy international illustrators and designers who are pulling off the veil on the concept of what it means to be invisible. Artists created work exploring the concepts of blending in, assimilating, and adapting to their surroundings. Whatever the reason, we're constantly in hiding in one way or another. The art of camouflage spans the political, aesthetic, scientific, magical, psychological and social realms. The Camouflage Exhibition is on display May 26th - July 14th, 2017.

Over the Yellows, Under the Greens
Original Embroidery – Signed
Cotton, wool, and blended fibers on cotton
About this piece:
The physical depth of each fiber, the layering of each loop and every curl, the fine geometry of aligning one stitch next to another--these are the attributes that I believe make embroidery a poignant medium to express the theme of camouflage. As I lay down each fragment of texture, it is with the knowledge that I cover the foundation behind. Like a lush jungle of delightfully varied foliage, the pieces that comprise my embroidery all exist in relation to one another. They are made that much more lively and vital based on the nature of the pieces that lay beside them. To a certain extent, each element overlaps one another, covering the often-unresolved threads and pock marks that remain hidden to the viewer's eye.
Just as humans often do, this embroidery covers its foundation in an attempt to disguise and distract from the seemingly unrefined knots and wonky stitchwork that make it what it is. Unlike many embroiderers, I choose to not cover the backs of my pieces so that the process of its making is evident to those willing to explore it. It is in this way that its haphazardly strewn fibers may lay forever in their beautiful imperfection.
About this artist:
I am a Minneapolis-based artist working across disciplines in embroidery, fiber, realistic portraiture, and abstraction. My works are informed by my art history degree but developed according to personal design preferences, a craving for geometric order, and a keen eye for color pairings.
