Growing up was rough for me, every single word embroidered on here I got called during childhood and during my teen years. This lead me to be depressed and vulnerable which is what I wanted to get across with this piece. Up until I finished placing on the last word they be on repeat in my head, always in the background. Since finishing not one has come back.
I covered my self in safe wash relief ink and pressed my self against the beautiful Fabriano sheet. I then embroidered each word onto a clear fabric specially for embroidery and then cut out each word and used spray mount to keep it in place. A thick layer of resin was placed over the body print itself to highlight the vulnerability of each mark and to finish it off I used a gloss sealant to tie in the embroidery and keep it steady.
