Artist inspiration

I found some inspiring work by other artists which I’d like to document for inspiration. They have provided me with a variety of ideas on techniques.

Fanny Viollet

I thought Fanny Viollet’s work was quite inspiring as her delicate embroidered letters are held together by a mesh.

Rosemarie Heber Koczÿ

Rosemarie Heber Koczÿ uses an amazing variety of techniques and material and wraps them into interesting forms. I like the idea of using ‘cloth’ to wrap into forms to create typography and this is something I would like to explore further.

Rieko Koga:

I find Koga’s stitched words and numbers on fabric very interesting. I particularly like the staggered nature in which Koga has presented the lines.
