Artist Statement

Sammy Millwood is an embroidery artist. Her art practice explores online presentations of femininity and sexuality, embracing a distinct new form of self-portraiture visible on social media. She aims to translate internet culture through the medium of embroidery, embracing its history of shared women’s cultural production. 

In her newest piece of embroidered self-portraiture ‘WFH’, Sammy Millwood interacts with the theme of NSFW, exploring the entanglement of sexuality during the Working From Home epoch. As workplaces across the globe are dissolved into living rooms and bedrooms, what happens to sexuality amid the constant drive to be productive across the clock? With gratification a few absent-minded clicks away, can we remain focussed through the haze of sexual daydreams, as endless enticements scroll across our screen and through our minds?

The delivery fee is included within the price of the artwork.
