Freehand machine embroidery

Shuya Cheng

The patterns and textures of both the natural and man-made world inspire Shuya Cheng’s delicate freehand machine embroideries, which are elegantly suspended in shadowboxes. These physical phenomena become absorbing abstract studies - with each piece of work consisting of thousands of tiny stitches interlinked to capture the form and essence of structures that are often overlooked by the every day observer.

Shuya also creates abstract paintings, primarily in acrylic but utilising a wide range of techniques and multi-media.

Intricate embroidery artwork, abstract giclee prints and greeting cards are available for sale at the BS9 Arts Trail.
