Woven portraits fresh off the cutting table! This is some recent work by Brooklyn based artist David Samuel Stern. I’ve written about him two other times... let’s just say it’s really hard not to share what he’s been up to. How does he do it? Well, this time I’ve got a few ‘behind the scenes’ photos, from start to finish, to share with you:

Sigh. Gorgeous… and I cannot even imagine having patience like David. Mind boggling.

Oooh! New pieces by Brooklyn based artist David Samuel Stern. I’ve written about his woven portraits before, but when I saw his latest work I gasped out loud. Now, there are in fact images of men in this series too but, oh my, there is something about these women that takes my breath away. So dreamy, so delicate, so careful… and that color palette. Sigh. Here is what this ongoing series is about:

These images are the result of physically weaving together two photographic prints of the same subject. They are an attempt to bridge dignified, direct portraits with a sort of abstraction that allows their subjects to hide within themselves, and the photographs to be distinctly physical objects. In hiding some things, we reveal others.

{If you’re in Brooklyn, several of David’s woven portraits will be on view at BAM from Sept 16th ~ Dec 20th… details about viewing times/location can be found here.}

Fun. Weird. Beautiful.

“Each of these portraits is the result of physically weaving together two photographic prints of the same sitter.” LOVE! This is the work of Brooklyn based photographer David Samuel Stern, and if you didn’t pick up on my subtlety, I LOVE it all! And now I’m a tiny bit dizzy.
