A Collaboration with
This latest embroidery was created for the back panel of a jacket, commissioned by the mural painter and illustrator Lauren YS.
The artwork has been interpreted in stitch from her original illustration 'cuddlefish' using a variety of combined Goldwork techniques, to achieve the desired level of graphic detail.
Making this piece has been a great step in the development of Middleton's practice as an embroiderer and artist. The challenge of transforming already exquisite pen strokes into tangible dimensions has been met.
Each meticulously planned layer has included many choices between thread and wire, silks and leather, all made in the effort to express the spark of the original illustration.
