Before I came across Berta Salinas’ work, I would’ve described embroidery as “kitschy” or “retirement home-y.” Clearly, I was wrong! I mean, the subject of the series of embroideries above is cannibalism. Cannibalism. She’s superseded kitsch, and I love it.

Also, Berta Salinas is a badass artist from Madrid. You can see more of her work here. She sells her embroideries here.
