New works from Loukia Richards.
"The Fulbright Foundation Greece included ten micro-embroideries in its annual Fulbright Alumni Art Series event that will take place in Thessaloniki in Winter 2011.
The 'micro-embroideries' series under the title 'Portrait Gallery' is inspired by Coptic embroidery, Persian miniature art and the Portrait Collections seen at the castles of European nobility.
However, the portraits are sketched and embroidered after my sine nobilitate friends, relatives and neighbours.
The influence of comics on this work is prominent."
