This single piece of artwork is what I would like to share with you today. I noted this piece back in February and I am drawn to it every time I am rifling through my favorites. It is a collage entailing fabric, thread and a vintage paper doll parts.
From what I can tell in the pictures and the artist description, the fabric has been stretched over a canvas and the artist has sewn circles of cut fabric onto the piece to resemble flowers. This detailed rich touch has me mesmerized.
The color choice is also dreamy. The blend of mustards, sepia tones and light olives is entirely too perfect. There is an heaviness to this piece which seams contradictory to it’s light floral background.
Do you remember Sophia Coppola’s film “The Virgin Suicides”? I get the same beautifully eerie feeling looking at this piece as I did watching that film.
I tracked down the artists blog and am trying to decipher the mysterious, thick lushness of her style.
I am somewhat taken by this piece as you can probably tell. It is not usual for me to highlight only one piece of art but I felt it deserved a spotlight. It is an original piece and available here… race you to it!
