The polaroid pho­to­graph is the quin­tes­sen­tial quick image. Some­times com­posed, some­times can­did, the appeal of these images is their imme­di­a­cy. Embroi­dery artist Artemis reimag­ines instant film with their intri­cate stitched snap­shots of land­scapes. The col­or­ful scenery fea­tures fields, forests, and flow­ers that are stitched on paper in a polaroid for­mat. Of course, embroi­dery takes much longer than the devel­op­ment of an instant pic­ture. This jux­ta­po­si­tion is what makes Artemis’ work so alluring—that it turns the pic­ture for­mat on its head. And of course, the embroi­dery is beau­ti­ful, too!

The orig­i­nal works are for sale on Etsy. To see what Artemis is up to next, fol­low the artist on Insta­gram.
