Stitchy Snippets - Scenic View
Iris Hutegger creates beautifully expressive, embellished landscapes.
The landscape photographs are originally captured in colour and then developed, the old fashion way, in black and white to reduce detail. The details and colour are then added with free-hand machine embroidery and a dense and more realistic scene evolves.
At distance the artwork looks like a drawing, painting or coloured photograph. The eye is drawn into the view and upon closer inspection the handwork and embellishment is evident.
