Dutch artist Natalie Ciccoricco’s embroideries breathe new life into vintage scenes. She uses found images and photographs, picking out their featured colours to create stitched radial circles that act as colour swatches. The coloured threads that are stitched into the images perfectly match their tones and each circle contains many different hues.
Deserts, mountains, houses, streets - Natalie likes to use a variety of vintage scenes featuring natural and built landscapes. She also draws inspiration from her dreams, nature, arts, literature and her travels. Having moved to the United States in 2012, Natalie is now based in California and is represented by Zukowski Collective. It was her move to America that first inspired Natalie to start making mixed media collages and illustrations, as she was living in a new and unfamiliar environment.
Natalie has shown art in juried shows at various renowned galleries, such as the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery, the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, STUDIO Gallery in San Francisco and La Luz de Jesus in L.A.
