Description of Show:
Ugly Art Room will present a solo show featuring the anatomical stitchings by NYC based artist Hannah Lamar Koelbl. During the opening reception on Saturday there will also be a live art performance.
I have been embroidering photographs, newspaper, and wax papers since 2007. In 2012 I began a master’s program in occupational therapy and completed a gross anatomy dissection. The experience inspired me to re-create illustrations from my anatomy textbook (Netter’s Anatomy) in drawing and embroidery.
Aesthetically, I love the female reproductive anatomy in particular. There are so many layers visually and texturally, and associations we draw upon. I look forward to developing this body of work for an upcoming solo show with Ugly Art Room in Corvallis, Oregon.
