Velo a Paris, detail 2006

My friend Viisti commissioned this small wall piece for her French friend's wedding in 2006. She wanted something that was typical about Paris and sensitive to its history, without being cliched; hence the combination of fabrics and imagery.

 

Transfer print of a Paris map from the 1870's, hand embroidery, transfer prints on silk, wool, cotton, linen.

25 x 40cm.

Photo: The Artist

Collection: France
