Works by Sissi Farassat
Works by Sissi Farassat at Edwynn Houk Gallery. "...Encountering Farassat’s works, one quickly sees that hundreds of hours have been spent changing by hand each photograph into a unique object. Farassat drastically alters the most inherent properties of the photographic medium: the instantaneousness of the camera and the possibility of creating multiple photographic prints. Instead, she takes needle and thread to each print, and hand-stitches thousands of crystals, beads, and sequins, transforming the photograph into a type of tapestry."
