Artist Peter Crawley studied and continues to work in the field of Product Design. He is perhaps best known for his stitched illustrations which he creates by hand-piercing various stocks of paper with a pin and then stitching the paper with a needle and cotton thread. His first stitching work was inspired by a road trip he took across America, and his latest is based on Joy Division’s 1980 song “Love Will Tear Us Apart”. The piece measures 420mm x 594mm and was made using a sheet of GF Smith Colorplan paper and white thread. Each horizontal line represents one minute of audio.
