thread drawings

23Feb13

Unfoldings is the title of a series of thread drawings by artist Allison Watkins. Check these out! She applies the thread to fabric in a variety of methods, from hand stitching to machine embroidery. While I like how detailed some areas are rendered, I think I like how the drawings are intentionally undone most of all. This makes the process easier to investigate, and on a theoretical level it opens up a dialogue on the subject.  And being the nerd I am, I get a kick out of the platonic play of drawing clothes using clothing materials.
