The Coruscant Tapestry

A cross-stitched tapestry for my solo show Such Pixels at Gallery 1988 (West) on Melrose in Los Angeles.

 

A hand-stitched cotton thread on 30 feet of continuous length, 7 stitch per inch Klostern fabric. Stiffened with a thin batting and hemmed with a custom-made printed pixel star fabric on rear. This cross-stitch tapestry depicts the Star Wars saga (so far) from Episode 1 through Episode 6. Quotes from each movie are written in Aurebesh on the surrounding border. Channeling the Bayeux Tapestry.

 

30 feet x 13 inches
