Punto a punto - Stitch by stitch

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

Based on the squares created by the streets of a city, vertical and horizontal, extrapolated from a fantasy pattern and taking painting as a mean of expression, I projected basic garments as if they were a blank canvas, where I could apply mechanic and methodical handicraft techniques to reflect my source of inspiration.

INSPIRATION

The painting technique of the Neo-Impressionists: Pointillism, based on the methodical calculation of brushstrokes, shades and pure colours, applied one close to another so that the eye summarizes the final shape: short, clear and regular brushstrokes, like dots (George Seurat 1859/1891); bigger brushstrokes, like tapestry stitches.

MATERIALS USED

The base of the garments is sack-cloth. Zippers, 100% PAC pompoms and 100% PAC balls for the outside. Inside 100% PAC satin linen.
