Striking Embroidered Self-Portraits By Annegret Soltau

"Self 1975-76" By Annegret Soltau | In the series 'Self 1975-76', German artist Annegret Soltau created striking embroidered self-portraits by stitching a thread over images of her own face. It was the first project where Soltau used a needle and thread to draw over a photograph and this style has since become her hallmark. Her imagery, which is both provocative and disturbing, often explores themes related to the self, metamorphosis and the female body.
