Pete Fowler ‘The Needle and The Damage Done’

Yes, the show’s title makes a reference to Neil Young’s 1972 track.

I recently did some stitch embroidery work with the World of Sama. The black and white pieces were a truly hit so they may be part of my new collection. As a big fan of Pete Fowler‘s work (and stitch embroidery, obviously), I wish I could see his show!

‘The Needle and The Damage Done’ is a body of new and original cross-stitch embroidery made during 2013. Colourful and psychedelic pieces, featuring Fowler’s traditionally outlandish juxtapostion of subject matter; Landscapes, UFO’s, Sailors, Roadies, Synths and Owls eschew the craft-like subject matter one would normally associate with the medium.
