CHARLOTTE STREET FOUNDATION STUDIO RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community

Amy Fredman

“I practice an unusual form of painting using a non-computerized home sewing machine. My intention is to approach the use of stitch placement from the perspective of a painter. With the careful distribution of sewn color gradients and layers, I am able to express depth and what appears to be color mixing as well as having the ability to achieve texture through directional changes and stitch strokes. I emphasize that I do not use a computerized sewing machine because my goal is to create something a computer, or programmable machine, is not capable of. With this technique I create photo-realistic images, mainly portraits of human or animal, while adding elements of imagination into my work to give each piece a specific personality.”
