Cayce Zavaglia paints in wool and thread and silk. Her remarkable “renegade embroidery,” as she calls it, is done on Belgian linen from one of the 100 or more photographs she snaps of each subject before beginning her layered portrait works. (See video at the bottom of this post) Zavaglia, based in St. Louis, relies on her training as an artist for the hand-embroidered works. Lyons Wier Gallery features her at Art Miami next week.
