ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the characteristics of the stitch work of Orly Cogan, Andrea Dezs ö and Caren Garfen. It states that the work of these artists revolves around sexuality, folklore and domestic duties. Garfen's intricate hand-embroidered and printed work won the top award at the One Year On show of selected student work from New Designers in London, England. On the other hand, Dezs ö stitches myths she recalls from her childhood in Transylvania, Romania to highlight the absurdity of their messages. Cogan uses embroidery to communicate subject material that critiques expectations of the female identity.
