I found this chair while urban exploring in East Atlanta back in 2016. The Atlanta Prision farm, now abandoned, was previously inhabited by inmates who would farm and harvest the surrounding land to feed their ranks. Additionally, large hills in the landscape are the sites of burials for two elephants who once lived at the Atlanta Zoo. I have rendered this chair many times in various media: including oil painting, linocut print, and in varied sizes of embroidery.
This is a handmade embroidery piece made using DMC embroidery thread on medium weight canvas - High quality canvas is typically used for oil paintings. The fabric is stretched, folded, and stapled permanently over high-quality wood stretcher bars. It is ready to hang with a picture wire installed on the back.
The size is 12" x 12" This is one of many iterations of the chair, but the first in this size. Some other available formats include:
