I’ve featured plenty of embroidered art, over the past year especially, but the work of Melissa Zexter just feels different. For starters, she’s a photographer by trade using her hand-sewn embroidery technique to enhance not distract. Digging deeper, Zexter combines the slow, meditative sewing process with the more immediate development of film to explore identity and femininity. And then it comes together in one fell swoop and we’re left staring in amazement.
