A Work Filled With Details

- The majority of Chris Roberts-Antieau’s artwork is fabric appliqué, a process of layering fabric that is cut, fused, and stitched together. She uses a mechanical Bernina sewing machine, manipulating her variety of fabrics through her machine by hand. Another technique found in her work is “thread-painting,” also known as free-motion machine embroidery. This is a process of layering different colors of thread and ‘drawing’ with the sewing machine, creating added elements like texture and dimension. She is also known for her found-object sculpture, incorporating her finds from antique shops and second-hand stores.  Her sculptures range from her “Tragic Snowglobes” to her Deer Heads made with old pieces of taxidermy.
