“There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterwards you can remove all traces of reality… the idea of the object will have left an indelible mark.” -Picasso
Abstract (as a transitive verb): take out of; extract; remove
I’m isolating some bits of the linear patterns to form little motifs that I can stitch repeatedly. Still working on paper, for now, with plans to stitch quite a lot over the next week or so.
These are long pages that fold up and pull out. The top one is an exercise in extending the linear patterns.
I added some stitch-type marks, again abstracted from some of the linear patterns. Kind of itching to pick up a needle now, though I probably won’t reproduce these colours in cloth and thread.
