Art Spotting: Matthew Cox’s Embroidered X-Rays

Written by Ashley

Embroidered Miss Piggy Up IN HERE.

Everyone from David Bowie, to Miss Piggy have reaped the benefits of being immortalized atop one of Philly based artist Matthew Cox‘s embroidered x-rays. Reminds me of another array of needlepoint heaven.

”Stitching has a nurturing aspect,” Cox has said of his work, “and acts as care giving or healing to the injured, a socially feminine sort of action, while the X-ray itself can be considered masculine and unemotional.”
