Stitchgasm! – Bunting by Collier-Wilson


Bunting. It could be something so tame. Simple colored flags decorating an outdoor scene. Something that belongs in the background, that helps to define a space, that is sweet but fairly inconsequential.

Bunted!

Not so, the glowing triangles of public art created by Rachel Collier-Wilson!

Art bunting against the light

Each cotton banner is a canvas for her machine embroidered “sketches” of the female form. On what appears to by hand-dyed fabric.

How lovely it would be to stumble upon such a gorgeous piece of textile art out in the world, blowing in the breeze, with the sunlight shining through and lighting it up like stained glass.

Her flickr stream has more gorgeous drawings in stitch.
