Sara Sachs uses the medium of cross-stitched embroidery to represent objects and symbols associated with American culture, high-fashion industry and female anatomy. Sachs employs an analogue practice to produce a flattened handmade copy. The slow and meticulous attention to detail appears antithetical to the standard production methods of the objects they depict. Sachs subverts the traditional associations of craft with singularity and individuality by depicting mass produced objects and equally challenges the dominant perception of mass production as lacking the fundamental craft quality of skillful production.
