Matthew Cox, based in Florida, the United States of America, who has reportedly finished about 30 embroiders on X-Rays prints of people’s and animals’ bodies. He has finished his works on a lot of subjects like Disney characters to animals and beautiful flowers, and even classics from Greek mythology. His work is very widely appreciated and is often taken into his exhibitions. This new form art is liked by critics, but some people find it very bizarre and dislike to look at them. Cox considers the radiographs as cold and emotionless objects, while the embroidery brings the idea of care and love, which enable healing of injured people.
The contrast of these two materials redefines the roles of each and creates a unique combination. “By combining the cold, blue, medical x-rays plastic with the colorful, decorative and tactile embroidery line, each object is removed from its original intent and creates a new entity. Manipulating these media also gives me the opportunity to comment on the growing presence of photography in contemporary art, introducing work on the speed, smoothness of the film,” said Matthew Cox.

We’ve known scriptures and textures and have been appreciating them til today. Among a lot of artists, the most famous names recount Leonardo DaVinci, Pablo Picasso, Michelangelo, Claude Monet etc. but we believe that there is an artist of our age, who creates art like in no other known way, artist who embroiders X-Rays prints into real forms, using different kinds of fabrics and colors.
