These gorgeous pieces by Louise Saxton are a proof that anything old can be brought back to life and flourish as a part of something new. And beautiful! Using old materials from the home such as vintage embroidery, old paintings, linen and wallpapers, Louise creates astonishing, colorful installations that are adored by many.
Since 2006, when Louise was granted to undertake an artist residency in Malaysia, she has focused mainly on the reconstruction of needlework which she calls a silent collaboration with the anonymous original makers.
I love that idea so much <3
