Artist Eliza Bennett takes embroidery to an almost shocking level with her work of art Woman’s Work is Never Done.  Through a top layer of the skin in her palm, Bennett sews multicolored thread.  The embroidery pattern resembles a familiar pattern of callouses that develop in hands frequently put to difficult work.  However, beyond its initially shocking impact, Woman’s Work is Never Done also carries a significant socio-political message.  Describing the work in her statement, Bennett says:
“By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the preconceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy.”
