Hand embroidery on found photograph, unique

1966 , United Kingdom

Julie Cockburn (b. 1966, UK) is renowned for re-imagining and re-configuring found
objects and vintage photographs into meticulously constructed and unique
contemporary artworks. Having trained as a sculptor at London’s Central Saint Martins,
Cockburn approaches each work as if working with a three-dimensional form. Her
photographic process involves exploring and reacting to nuances such as colour, pose,
composition or texture in found archetypal images and transforming them through
embroidery, collage and painterly techniques. Rendering the original almost

interpretation. She has exhibited extensively in the UK, Europe and the United States and
her work resides in a number of public collections, including the Yale Center for British
Art (USA) and the Wellcome Collection (London, UK).
