Embroidery artist combines space and flowers in surreal dreamy landscapes
Belarusian textile artist Yulia Krishchik imagine surrealist dream landscapes inspired by the wonders of space and nature. She combines vibrant gardens and tranquil blue streams with visions of colorful planets and galaxies in stunning hand-embroidery art.
Each of his compositions is split in two between an earthly oasis below and an arch of astronomical sites above. Krishchick intentionally combines these two elements so close to each other to create a sense of intimacy in the design. âThe idea of ââa universal connection is very inspiring to me. Nothing in the world stands out, âthe artist told My Modern Met. âEverything in the universe is a continuous network of threads. My works reflect this idea – it is a kind of allegory to touch the universe with my own hands and eyes.
Krishchick uses a variety of embroidery techniques and materials to try to mimic the effect of oil and watercolor in his works. By using three-dimensional mediums, however, she is able to create art that she can not only interact with on a visual level but also tactile. For example, planets and spiral galaxies typically feature felt webs, while blooming flowers are made of thick dots sticking out of the hoop.
