Artist Uses A Sewing Machine To Capture Nature’s Fragile Beauty With Embroidery

“I hope to capture the power, beauty and fragility of nature in knotted embroidery threads. The work explores the sculptural possibilities of a unique embroidery technique that utilizes a domestic sewing machine and a base fabric that dissolves in water. By repeatedly stitching threads into dense structures I create intricate and complex openwork compositions that mimic natural forms and structures.”, told artist Meredith Woolnough to Bored Panda.

“I have always found inspiration in the natural world. Exploring, collecting and drawing makes up a large part of the field work aspect of my practice which gives me a great excuse to go for lots of bushwalks in search of reference material. I am also a keep scuba diver and love to explore the world below the waves as well.”

“I have always been fascinated by the structure of things, from the hard shapes of coral colonies to the minute arterial veins in leaves. I like to draw parallels between the growth and life systems of various organisms in my work commenting upon the interconnectedness of all living things.”
