This beautiful stitched photograph by Francesca Colussi exemplifies her practice in finding photographs and vintage postcards and stitching unique stories into them. Francesca works with many different images from portraits like 'The Importance of a Positive Attitude' to landscapes. In this piece, the artist has created a detailed and characterful head-dress on the sitter through a variation of colours. Such a pattern transforms the image into a new and contemporary context. Although this work is small, it is intricately detailed.
