I loved making this piece even though it is my biggest piece of embroidery yet at 12 inches by 12 inches. Andy took over 185 hours to stitch and a whole lot of patience. I was inspired to make this piece as we live in such a fast paced world where our identity or validation can feel like it comes from social media and how many likes we have. Its not a judgement piece as I am also 'guilty' of wanting the dopamine hit a like gives you. This piece also referrences a quote Andy Warhol is supposed to have said which gave rise to the "15 minutes of fame..." quote we have all heard.
Original Hand Embroidery. This original piece of hand embroidery has been hand stitched by me over a period of 185 hours onto linen.

A beautiful and colourful embroidery of Andy Warhol with the logos for Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Claire created this as she loves Pop Art and Andy Warhol. There is a subversive meaning to this piece referencing self worth, social media and likes.
The stitches in this work are tiny and there are thousands, from seed stitch to satin stitch and back again. This piece was lovingly hand stitched and took approximately 185 hours to make.
