Week Link Post - 5 and Week Seven of the lunchtime project


Good morning.

Happy Friday, and welcome to the linky post!


 
First up, we have Bella May Leonard's  unusual "sculptural embroidery". As the name might imply it’s 3D, but in addition to her taking her embroidery up and out, she also uses unusual substrates, 'thread" and a collage/assemblage technique. Check it out HERE



Next we have simply eye candy. No interview, and just a small amount of text, but evocative photographs using a multiple exposure technique with surprising results. Check out Christopher Relander’s photography at his website  HERE






It's an "oldie but a goodie" but since I pulled it up to remind myself about the corners this week, I thought you might be interested as well if you haven't seen it - check out Lyric Kinard's tutorial for gallery wrapped canvas HERE .

Next up, there's an interview with local Toronto artist Catherine Heard about her ... discomfiting work, HERE
 
Next:  you may already be familiar with the work of "Mr. Finch" (and if you're not, I suggest you follow his blog - he doesn't post often, but when he does, his work is glorious!); but whether you're a follower or not, Colossal has done a feature on him, and I think you'll enjoy the peek. You can check it out HERE



And last but not least, Lithuanian artist  Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė embroiders and cross-stitches metal objects (no really!) Check out her work and an interview with here  HERE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And... as you can see with my work this week, I didn't have a plan. (It's been the week's theme when it comes to my art.)
 
Over my lunches this week,  I was mostly talking, giggling and indulging in a small amount of harmless gossip with my work chum through our lunches this week, rather than concentrating on my work.

 
So the resulting work doesn’t make a lot of sense, and I can't say there’s anything  linking these disparate bits of stitchery (not to mention, the stitches holding my circles down are TERRIBLE, lol) but there’s something sort of charming about it. (At least, I think so!)


More work on the “winter birch” scene on Monday – it’s coming along and I’m quite pleased with it!
Until then, have a great weekend. Be safe out there!

Fascinating links as always. I was lucky enough to see some of Severija's work on display at the Knitting and Stitching Show last year. It's even better in real life.

Oh Kit, those double exposures are just yummy and amazing and Mr. Finch is definitely worth following!! Waiting for Monday to see the trees!!!!

Charming, definitely...and a fun way to relax with colleagues. As for the links...I shared one with my daughter and stored a couple away for future reference. Love the embroidery-on-metal!
