Jupiter embroidery - done! My own design, loosely based on a series of photos by NASA showing the Great Red Spot devouring nearby little spots :-) Chain stitch in cotton, silk and specialty threads.
Such perfect chain stitching! ♥
Oh my word.
I’d pay top dolla for a big floor rug.
Alexandra Bellissimo blends nature and the human form with beautifully surreal and sometimes jarring results.
Bellissimo on her work:
In continuation with my ‘Simulations’ series, I have created a body of work that depicts psychological and emotional imagery through juxtaposition of nature and humanity. I execute my visual intentions through use of traditional collaging techniques and physically constructing the prints. Utilizing this technique of collaging allows me to achieve a surreal and eerie effect along with creating textures and depth to the images. With this unification of people and nature, my photo collages evoke a variety of human emotions such as anxiety, tranquility, and confinement.
Fireflies on the Water by Yayoi Kusama (2002) consists of a small room lined with mirrors on all sides, a pool in the center of the space, and 150 small lights hanging from the ceiling, creating a dazzling effect of direct and reflected light, emanating from both the mirrors and the water’s surface.
