Maurizio Anzeri at the BALTIC gallery.

We really love this exhibition currently on at the BALTIC gallery in Gateshead by Maurizio Anzeri. You can also buy our Lov Li cards from the Baltic shop.


25 June 2011 - 2 October 2011

Maurizio Anzeri's unusual working process brings together found photographs and embroidery. Using portraits from the 1930s and 1940s collected at flea markets, Anzeri overlays abstract designs by sewing intricately patterned threads directly onto the photographic surface. Obscuring part of the photograph he both hides and heightens certain features of the face. His precise juxtapositions transform the discarded image, giving his portraits a disquieting and psychological presence.
