It’s amazing how contemporary artists use embroidery as a medium to create so much beauty in so many diverse ways. Inspired by plants, coral and cells, Meredith Woolnough uses thread to create elegant shapes and patterns that are an absolute delight for the eye.
After sketching out a pattern on fabric, Meredith carefully applies the thread with a sewing machine. The fabric is then dissolved into water, leaving nothing but the beautiful body of Meredith’s stitching work. Finally, she pins the bodies into shadowboxes, like preserved specimens.
