I had the opportunity to see Cayce Zavaglia’s work up in person at the Lyons Weir Gallery in New York City several years ago and was completely smitten. The work, a fluid combination of hand embroidery and acrylic paints on canvas or linen, is truly stunning. The stitch work, the craft, is so detailed and practiced as to make the skin tones, hair and fabric move not unlike the work of a master expressionist. This is brilliant work marrying the mastery of embroidery with the expressiveness of painting.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
