In my endless quest for quirky textile art I was glad to find this.
Seriously!? There are so many great embroidery artists out there!
These works are by Chilean artist Jose Romussi, who now lives and works in Berlin. Romussi’s creations have a very playful vibe to them. In his series Dance, featuring vintage ballerinas, his thread takes on the shape of the dancer’s costumes. In his newer work, he appears to be inspired by the forms of the face. See Romussi’s other work on his website.
By the way, I’m loving the quote in the last picture!
