i’m jealous of melina berkenwald


This piece, titled Flotation, is just one example of many beautiful pieces by Buenos Aires based artist Melina Berkenwald. On first glance, they almost look like Impressionist paintings… the softness, the industrial subject matter, but in fact they’re actually photographs printed on canvas, with bits and pieces that have been hand-embroidered. Yes, that’s right. Hand-embroidered photographs. Sigh.
