Glorious embroidery

While avoiding work recently I came across this wonderful site of work by Gordana Brelih. There's much more to browse at the site, but I was particularly taken by this piece because it exemplifies something I'd like to achieve in my own work: faces that are recognizable but neither realistic nor cartoonish. Plus, of course, the balance between empty space and lush ornamentation, the color scheme and everything else that makes this a work of art.

And by the way, yes, I do know the blog lists in the right sidebar are screwed up. Every time I've tried to fix them this morning Blogger has told me, "You can't do that!" I'll try again another day.


  1. Her work is outstanding! I really like her mono prints and she has some bags in her gallery that are wonderful! What inspiration!!!

  2. I never knew about her until I stumbled across this website. So many artists, so little time...

  3. I love her bags and pods, among other things. Thanks for introducing her to us.
