We are so varied in our ways of understanding. It is our interpretation that makes us creatively unique. Once a situation becomes a photograph, the real story has already shifted. When transferring it to textile, it changes again. Threads and colour are to a textile artist as words are to a writer and light is to a photographer.
Here’s a sample of what textile artist Sue de Vanny can do with a Reece Scannell photo textile panel . It’s amazing. Originally a scene of statues in a garden in a Viennese palace. Now an embellished elephants head . This evocative piece radiates sadness of the elephants plight in its beautiful detailed thread work .
The piece will join the Transformations : Photorealism in Thread Textile Art Collection in future exhibitions along with more contributing artists . You can see this masterpiece along with many other treasures at the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair Melbourne Convention Centre.Exhibition and Gallery
