This embroidery I created while on residency at Art Villa Garikula, in Georgia. During that residency I experimented with embroideries of people with natural elements, looking for a balance between nature and human, the individual and the natural collective.
This hand embroidered needlepainting shows the profiles of two girls, connected by a tree. I imagined them to be either twins or two aspects of the same individual, connected through a natural element, giving the whole piece a sense of symmetry and peacefulness.
IIt’s a miniature work, the embroidery measures 5.5 by 7 cm and is created with silk threads .The full piece measures 13 by 17.5 cm.
