Embroidered X-Rays by Matthew Cox

Craft & Design Yarncraft

Philadelphia-based artist, Matthew Cox, creates beautiful embroidery on x-rays and MRI images.

Redefinition motivates me to create my embroidered x-rays. The stark clash of two such divergent materials, cloth and plastic, is the simple catalyst. One tactile and labor intensive, the other technical, and quickly a finished product. There’s a wide historical context, one ancient, decorative, and artisanal, the other contemporary and devoid of aesthetic intention. By simply placing one of these materials on top of the other the understood purpose of each is redefined.
