Etsy Find of the Day: Selflesh

You know what a sucker I am for art that incorporates stitchery (see Lisa Solomon, Diem Chau, and Cathy Cullis). So of course I'm all over these pieces by Etsy seller Selflesh (aka Rangeley, Maine mixed-media artist Shannon Rankin). I especially love how they use thread to literally depict the bonds of the heart and the way we become ensnared in each other's intricate webs. Strings attached -- there always are. Above: Original Anatomy Map Collage, $45

Original Anatomy Map Collage, $100
