Fabulous artist Izziyana Suhaimi, her work primarily involves the use of embroidery. She is interested in collapsing the boundaries between traditional and popular cultures and exploring the links that exist between these two. Her work examines how this particular mishmash manifests itself in modern times, especially concerning modern youths. Preferring to work with craft-based techniques, she is attracted to the evidence of the hand and its time-consuming aspect, which runs counter to the instant gratification and mass-production centred age of today.
The eye that directs a needle in the delicate meshes of embroidery will equally well bisect a star with the spider web of the micrometer. Maria Mitchell, 1818 – 1889
