Silk and Colour

I have something really special to show you! I want to introduce you to an incredible artist, Marta Brysha, from the highlands of Tasmania.  She just launched a brand new website to display her work. Her gorgeous embroideries in hand-dyed silk dupioni and hand-dyed silk thread are inspired by scientific topics. For example, her work In Flight shows streamlines around a bird in flight:

More detailed photos are on her website. Evolution I (below) illustrates a fluid droplet.

Each drop is worked with layers and layers of hand-dyed silk.

Folks, this is a tiny, tiny sample of what you can find at Marta’s website. Do you know how hard it was to pick just a few to show you? Pure torture! There are dozens more!!!! I didn’t even show you all the close up photos where you can see the stitching! In fact, there’s an entire series of artworks which are not represented by any photos in this post. But that’s not all! Her blog, Silk and Colour, shows work in progress, photos of more works that haven’t been added to the website yet (like the nebula below!)

Come and Meet Me in the Middle of the Air

and experimental works that may lead to a new series:

Diatom (type of phytoplankton). Silk on acrylics and paper

You can also find posts about how she does it, like this post on how she dyes her silks. So be sure to check the blog out too!!!
