LOVELY BONES

When I stumbled across these sweet yet ghoulish images of embroidered x-rays, I instantly wanted to find out more. They are the work of Philadelphian artist Matthew Cox, who actually stitches onto the x-rays to create these quirky and original pieces of art. By adding layers of flowers to the images, he subverts their original purpose, taking something clinical and turning it into something beautiful.


He says the x-rays symbolise the masculine world of medicine and technology and he was inspired to add the traditional craft of embroidery to fuse the masculine with the feminine. I'm completely fascinated by these eerie embroidered skeletons and can’t wait to see what Matthew will come up with next.
