Indigo and embroidery on canvas


Indigo and embroidery on canvas is a serie of works comprised of 13 small format canvases, created during the last two years of my graduate studies. While I was doing research on children’s drawing, I came across an old notebook (my mum’s cookbook) with my drawings, which I made in the period between the age two and four. I’ve magnified the drawings and aphorisms by two and I have transferred them onto a canvas toned with black tea by using carbon paper (in Serbia called indigo). I have embroidered my drawings, some partially, some completely, dealing with them in a new way, and again, twenty odd years later.
