Microcosm with Jessica So Ren Tang @ Modern Eden Gallery

Distinctly beautiful and expressive, the delicate stitches of embroidery move together like a dance- weaving a narrative that creates a truly stunning piece of art. If you love this beautiful medium as much as we do, then get inspired and join Modern Eden Gallery for Microcosm with Jessica So Ren Tang this Saturday, October 12th.

Press: Modern Eden Gallery presents Microcosm, a collection of top contemporary artists working in textiles and embroidery, presented along with a series of new works from San Francisco-based artist Jessica So Ren Tang. The artist’s newest series of hand-embroidered paintings continue her ongoing exploration of object and figure through a cross-cultural lens. The works, delicate and yet explicitly commanding of our attention, explore the intersection of nature and self-identity, as the artist, with graceful attention to detail (and intrepid cleverness) stitches together a personified subject with a storytelling object.

“Embroidery is versatile in mimicking the original object in shape and design but still distinct enough to be recognized as something else. The stitches are soft but substantial, more tangible.”- Jessica So Ren Tang
