Other kindred spirits...
It's been head down lately sewing for my upcoming exhibition, but I thought I'd quickly post about couple of other kindred spirits whose work I discovered in Paris on a recent visit in the bookshop at Palais de Tokyo...
One is the Finnish artist Anu Tuominen whose work "Earth I" (2005) I have in postcard form above my desk - the piece is made from collected socks and mittens, like the pictured works (from top) "Under the Great Sky, at the Foot of the Wide Blue" and "Hammock".
The other is artist Lucie Duval of Quebec, whose work graced the cover of an art magazine featuring women artists, and when I saw the image of the garments made of gloves my eyes lit up in glee!
