Finally the Muse 1 tarpaulin is finished. It measures 200 cm by 150 cm. I don’t embroider everything, I wanted to leave the colours symbols generated by the transfer work of my original collage in cross stitch grid. I embroidered giant feather stitches to disrupt the regularity of the cross stitch.
Here I share some pictures of the small original embroidered collage (30x42cm)
And here are some pictures of the giant cross-stitch tarpaulin.
I needed more time for my experimentation with this large tarpaulin, here are some pictures and one video about the process from the last weeks.
I like the relationship with this format that goes beyond me. The work of embroidery becomes very physical, choreographic. I like the amplitude of the movements that lead the act of embroidering to that of performing.
I connect again to the embroidered performances I used to do a few years ago. A pure Joy!
