Magic and feminine bodies are a throughline threading through embroidery artist Serap Sahin’s (*1985, Turkey) work. Girl in the Backyard (2019) demonstrates the importance and desire to heal from childhood traumatic experiences through the act of playing with toys in a backyard. The girl’s head is executed in the form of a flower, a symbol of purity and innocence that encourages us toward self care and self love.
