Polish born artist Natasza Niedziolka’s beautiful abstract compositions are made using thread and embroidery on canvas, in a perfect combination of color, shape and texture. Rejecting the traditional guidlines of craft-art, her influences come from Dada artists such as Jean Arp. Niedziolka embraces the Dada movements spontaneous and seemingly irrational methods of artistic creation, to produce her subtle abstract embroideries. See Horton Gallery’s website for a full profile.
These fabric sculptures are constructed from recycled wool sweaters, cut into small jagged strips, then soaked and hand-dyed with acrylic paints thinned with water. Each small felted-wool strip is painstakingly hand-stitched with embroidery thread into larger plate-like shapes, backed with fabric, then sewn together around hidden interior wire forms, creating beautifully abstracted mountains.
