View Points Davos is a series of 4 landscape pictures, framed in embroidery hoops.
They are replicas of pictures I took in my hometown of places (view points) I really like.
On the back, the exact geographic coordinates are indicated.
To the fiber techniques (appliqué and hand stitch), mixed media is added (miniature sculpting and painting). The pieces are adorned with paraphernalia I found in exactly the same places as depicted (dried flowers, stones, lichen etc.).
Here are the four pieces:
One of the pieces (Albertibach) was juried into the yearly contemporary art exhibition Bündner Werkschau at the gallery Kabinett der Visionäre in Chur in 2016.
The stamped series is not new, but I am catching up with this blog today… hopefully… 😉
So: for the stamped series, I cut stamps (obviously!). I started with cutting lino, but my fingers didn’t like the band aids very much… therefore, I bought some rubber sheets which are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay easier to cut!
