fashionable stitches

The artwork featured today is by Inge Jacobsen. Inge says "The work I am currently making is an intervention into found images through embroidery, cutting, and collaging. The images I use are from women’s high fashion magazines and pornographic images found on the internet. These make up the basis of most of my work although I am starting to explore newspaper imagery as well. My main concern as an artist is how one responds to the mass of imagery in the world. Altering these is central to a lot of my work."
I think this black-and-white horse image with the stitching over it is just incredible.
