KIRSTY WHITLOCK I like kirsty Whitlock's work as she uses free machine embroidery to draw and adorn a surface. She uses recycled materials like in this piece she has used a tesco bag and a newspaper to create a piece. These slogans are embroidered onto the bag and are comments about society today. I love political art as I feel it has purpose and is another way of people speaking their views. There is also layers thread sewn and left hanging to create more texture and distress the piece.
