I Spy – Pens and Needles

Pens and Needles is an exhibition running from now until January 14th in the Print House Gallery, 18 Ashwin Street, London, E8 3DL.

It has been curated by Jemma Ooi and Nathan Philpott, the duo behind CUSTHOM and is a collection of tactile posters that explore the use of digital embroidery as a unique and expressive form of drawing.

The designs on show hold coherence in colour, as they are limited to bright red, azure blue, sapphire and bright white.  Colour and paper size were the sole restraints, so the possibilities of digital embroidery process come under the spotlight.
