Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Andrea Mindel

"I am a multi-disciplinary artist based in the UK, currently obsessed with embroidery. My practice addresses themes of social injustice, grief and mourning within the context of climate crisis, illness and genocide. I use my work to advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community and other under-represented voices.

I embroider with conscience – one stitch at a time – creating materiality through the repetitive motion of stitch. My work pays tribute to, memorialises and honours difficult narratives." Andrea Mindel


Andrea sits and works on her embroidery in a gallery foyer. Her glasses are rested on the fabric and a tall, slim light illuminates her intricate work.
