Richard Bassett, artist, has a new series of needlepoint pillows based on photographs from that terrible day, November 22nd, 1963, when President Kennedy was assassinated. Needlepoint scenes of images taken in Dallas, some well known images. His artist statement on these pieces explains their significance.
In our climate of visual inundation, these images, which once shocked and grieved a nation, now feel all too familiar and commonplace. Is this a consequence of time or has the daily onslaught of visual violence dulled our senses to a such a degree that it’s difficult to see them for what they are? And, can the shock of seeing these images on pillows momentarily snap us back to their reality?
And then pop over to our shop to see the rest of the collection HERE.
The measurements are 4" at widest point by 5 5/8" length.
