Here's what she says about the work:
"In this series beauty and fragility are enhanced. Hand stitching takes the place of drawing, abstracting the subject, breaking down the features to a more vulnerable state. The thread 'melting' into the fabric representing delicate 'skin'."
 
You can see her portrait "Fragility #2" exhibit along with other entries for the prize at Piano Nobile Kings Place,London until the October 9th
Emily Tull is represented by Artist Partners
