Matthew Cox, Embroidered X-Rays

Matthew Cox takes an xray of a part of the body and embellishes it with the flesh recreated. He says on his site of his inspiration for the work;

‘The stark clash of two such divergent materials, cloth and plastic, is the simple catalyst. One tactile and labor intensive, the other technical, and quickly a finished product. There’s a wide historical context, one ancient, decorative, and artisanal, the other contemporary and devoid of aesthetic intention. By simply placing one of these materials on top of the other the understood purpose of each is redefined.’
