Making Smiles with Machine Embroidery

Cindy Hickok’s intricate machine embroideries are included in our September/October 2010 issue. Here we share additional examples of her work, which is filled with witty wordplay and humorous references to art history. “My embroideries are intended to provide the viewer a look at everyday situations with a tinge of humor.” Hickok explains. “My aim is not to make a political statement; rather, it is to produce work that will inspire a smile, a memory, an appreciation of the world we share.”

All work is machine stitched with rayon thread on dissolvable fabric. Courtesy of Jane Sauer Gallery, Santa Fe, New Mexico. Photos: Rick Wells.
