Indigo and embroidery on canvas/ Indigo i vez na platnu

 

 

Indigo i vez na platnu je serija radova koju čini 13 platana manjih formata, nastala je tokom poslednje dve godine osnovnih studija. Istraživajući dečiji crtež pronašla sam staru beležnicu (mamin kuvar) sa svojim crtežima, koji su nastali u periodu mog uzrasta od dve do četiri godine. Crteže i aforizme iz sveske uvećala sam dva puta i indigom sam ih prenela na platno tonirano crnim čajem. Delimično sam negde, a negde potpuno, izvezla svoje crteže, baveći se njima na novi način, i sa dvadeset godina više, ponovo.

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. I have embroidered my drawings, some partially, some completely, dealing with them in a new way, and again, twenty odd years later.
