Embroidery on Ink: work n°2/ Collaboration with the artist Florence Obrecht

The second art collaboration I made with the painter Florence Obrecht : Encre Brodée 2, Ink on Paper by Florence Obrecht, I create the embroidery with cotton and lurex threads, glass beads.

21,2cm x 16,5 cm, May 2020.

This collaboration with Florence is made for the project Les Amis des Artistes (see my first post here) initiated by her Gallery in Paris and various cultural institutions in order to help artists during the Corona crisis.

The Back side…I do like the other side of an embroidery, of any embroidery! I think they have a fragile beauty in theire unevenness…

Embroidery on Ink: work in progress/ Collaboration with the artist Florence Obrecht

Florence Obrecht is a painter working on many themes that are close to my artistic concerns. She works with found images, photographs from unknown people that she reuse in her paintings in order to celebrate their memory.

She asked me to embroider 2 of her small formats ink on paper. She makes them for the project Les Amis des Artistes initiated by her gallery owner Valérie Delaunay and various galleries and cultural stakeholders like the Fondation Antoine de Galbert ,to help artists during the Corona crisis.

ALL ABOUT THE STILL LIFE THE MESSENGER

This textile Still life is the newest I created , and maybe the last one in this form.

It is made with bird’s wings found on the flea market and a vintage men jacket, it is composed of a branch of rose embroidered with glass beads ans cotton threads , scraps from glitter fabric and plastic, pieces of ribbons .

Yes it is probably the last one, the last still life . I want to extend the embroidery and the sewing techniques on a larger scale.

I may build bigger and larger textil still life for a wall or for a room, or the the city (like the D-Ring the Muses in the city project) by using bigger embroidery tools ( I have to build it ) and threads.

Anyway , I want to share images of The Messenger creation process.

I am fascinated and intrigued by the ex-voto as well as the Sacred Hearts from the 18th and 19th Century. Some use very complex craft techniques like embroidery made with hairs or beautiful bead embroidery mixed with delicate goldsmith work. I built The Messenger by remembering all that.
