Adipocere (Australia) developed an interest in embroidery as art in 2014, after he cross stitched an homage to the film Alien. From there he has created his own visuals inspired by a fascination with the macabre, combining themes of innocence with an unsettling and sinister melancholy, referring to many of his works as ‘emotional self-portraiture’. An environmental science student, flora and fauna related theory often influence his work as does a desire to utilize materials that are more sustainable. Working predominantly on natural linen, he has occasionally stitched temporary works into the epidermis layer of his left hand.
