ARTmonday: Inge Jacobsen

Using images found in fashion magazines and newspapers, Irish-Danish artist Inge Jacobsen creates textured photo collages by adding embroidery. She sees her technique as a way of linking women’s hobbies from generations ago with hobbies and interests of her own generation. She says, “I can, and have, spent long periods of time reading Vogue magazines just like my grandmother and her sisters spent a long time cross-stitching.”
