The artist Sarah Becker worked for some of the biggest fashion houses, but after many years of trying to 'fit' in,  she stopped following the "rules" and found her path in art.

Educated from Denmark's Design School, she has always been fascinated by silhouettes - especially animal silhouettes and their colors and textures.

Needlework as an art form must break some boundaries. Art is constantly moving in different forms, and there is a need to be more experimentation with handwork for it to be art.

"Embroidery is absolutely fantastic, but it takes an insane amount of time to do"

Present exhibition

Horsens Art Museum

The exhibition shows a large number of embroidered works created in the period from spring 2021 to summer 2023.

The motifs revolve around the immediate world. The use of the timeless still lifes and settings creates a connection to the symbolism of classical painting. The stage is home. The world right around Sarah Becker. She draws with the thread, paints on the fabric.

Exhibition period:

Saturday 7 October 2023  - Sunday 14 January 2024
