Painting with Thread

by David Behringer of the Two Percent

Cayce Zavalgia @ Lyons Wier Gallery, 542 W 24th St, ends 12/12.  

One of Cayce Zavaglia photorealistic portraits made of thread.

Cayce Zavaglia creates photorealistic portraits of friends and family with ONLY THREAD.  A few years ago she "noticed" the BACKS of the embroidered works that form "blindly" as she works on the front.  So not only will you get to see the back of one of these, but she's also created several paintings of the chaotic reverse side of the thread works.  Wow.
