embroid_skimpy-bikini1A wonderful artist, with amazing personal sketchbooks, cut paper work, mosaics, pop up books and this embroidery, based on saying her mother used to tell her.

some of her work on the parsons school of art site, where she teaches.

Andrea Dezsö’s “Lessons From My Mother” consists of 48 individually framed cotton squares embroidered with illustrated bits of off-the-wall, scurrilous, sometimes scatological, and often sickening lies and superstitions (among the less offensive: “My Mother Claimed That A Woman’s Legs Are So Strong That No Man Can Spread Them If She Doesn’t Let Him”).
–The Wall Street Journal
