Embroidery and Stuff

 

The essence of embroidery is constraint, whether by the lines we draw as a guide for the needle, the hoop that confines the fabric at the same tension

The tension varies, you can stab the needle through the fabric at will, or glide it through, soothe or strain

Freeform embroidery asks the needle to paint like a brush with greater precision and less delicacy

Here the  needle and thread paints, draws the boundaries, leaps from the fabric taking the form of the object represented

threaded water hills mountain grass

fabric nets of tendrils an molecules taking their own form
