The embroideries of Tom Lundberg often take the forms of badges, cuffs, and pockets—shapes that follow the movements of people. His intimate textiles appear to contain fragments of memory, glimpses of everyday life, and pieces of bigger pictures. Lundberg’s involvement with needlework draws upon the medium’s traditions of mending, comfort, and persistence. These small works investigate how stitched cloth can embody the stages of life and give shape to the subject of time.
