Revisiting :: Embroidered House

19 August 2009

This is another favourite post of mine from a year ago.

I'm not entirely sure why, but when I saw this divine installation it made my heart sing. It could be a number of reasons: firstly the title "Embroidered House" - how romantic does that sound? It could also be that it's reminiscent of playing with a torch in childhood cubby houses, or the magic that seems to surround the little house. The contradiction of fragile/strong is wonderful - again that comes from the title of the piece as well as the fine detail and strength of materials. Whatever it is I absolutely love this piece of art by installation artist and sculptor Greer Honeywill. You can see more of Greer's work at the Flinders Lane Gallery website and on her website here.
