Alaina Varrone's Embroidered EroticaErotica // Saturday, 08 Jun 2013
Alaina Varrone is arguably the ballsiest embroidery artist out there. She embroiders striking scenes and images that are often explicit in nature, creating a wonderfully weird contrast between a traditionally inoffensive medium and its content. Born in New Haven, Connecticut "to a family of weirdos and storytellers," Varrone says she "uses this natural creativity to tell her own stories in thread." Varrone attended MICA as a fiber arts student and is currently working on a series based on the various gang girls of mythology.
