Are You Ready For Adventure?
‘Embroidered Art’ as a title really is self explanatory, that’s they book, it is fine art in a fabric, tactile form: A treasury of Fine Art to Stitch – in its most visual form. Who is it aimed at? Those with a keen interest in embroidery or those who come from a Fine Art background and wish to peruse a different way of working. This is one for all ages, yet may seem complex stitching wise to beginners. About the artist Giordano was originally interested in Illustration, thus we see this aspect merged with her embroidery style. This has led to many commissions and collaborations with clients such as Penguin and Vintage Books. She is now classed as one of the great embroiderers of this time. Content The contents allows us into her world, this artists mindset and way of working. Practical areas are covered, exploring colour, types of thread and image composition – making that transition from sketch to stitch. After these practical areas are covered, the artist then delves deeper into her own world, allowing us to see how certain works of hers have been put together. It doesn’t feel as if she wants us to copy, this book is one of inspiration, not a step by step guide. Photography and what makes this book special…. The imagery, which embraces nature and shows it off at its very best. What is wrong with the book? Speaking bluntly, if you are a cold hearted person, or one who simply does not appreciate beauty and nature, then you are pretty doomed and will find this treasury boring. However, for the rest of us, without sounding too worthy or twee, it is joyful and uplifting. Conclusion Go, just treat yourself to The Embroidered Art of Chloe Giordano right now.
