Melissa Zexter was born in Rhode Island and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. She holds a BFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from New York University. Zexter has exhibited throughout the United States and internationally, including shows at The Triennial Design Museum in Milan, Italy; The Fuller Craft Museum, MA; Muriel Guepin Gallery, NYC; Robert Mann Gallery, NY; and the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Her work has been published and reviewed in numerous publications including AfterImage, ELEPHANT, Juxtapoz, The New York Times, The Boston Herald, The New Yorker, Art New England, BUST, and New York Magazine. Zexter combines embroidery with photography. She sews by hand directly onto photographs she has taken, combining a traditional practical skill, embroidery, with a modern and mass reproducible process, photography. Concerned with the interaction between hand and eye in relation to the photographic image, Zexter's complex works explore memory and personal experience while manipulating the generic qualities of the photographic print.
