This week’s Cutting (& Stitching) Edge features the work of Noelle Mason.
She is a truly astounding artist; you can see the breadth of her body of work on her website. From “Ground Control” a woollen rug featuring a thermal image of the US-Mexico border in California, to stained glass pieces reproducing the surveillance camera image of Princess Diana leaving the Ritz hotel, Noelle’s work investigates “the subtle seductiveness of power facilitated by systems of visual control”.
The piece we focus on here is entitled “Nothing Much Happened Today (for Eric and Dylan)”. It is a cross stitch piece finished in April this year, and is 50 inches high by 66 inches wide. It took Noelle five years to complete. It is incredibly powerful.
