Takashi Iwasaki: Art of Embroidery

minotogetenti

A rising star from Winnipeg, Japanese artist Takashi Iwasaki draws, paints and does collage and printmaking. But he is also drawn to the painstaking work of hand embroidery as a way of expanding his visual vocabulary. These meticulous works are embroidery floss on twill or canvas. See many more on his website, here.  (Above:  Minotogetentil)

      I used to watch my grandmother embroider (practically everything) and I’m assuming that even the actual movements of needle and floss of this artist are vastly more complicated than anything I ever saw my granny do.
