TWO SIDED DRAGON CARPET
Hand embroidery on 3 layers of silk. The bright colors of the middle layer appears on the transparent white front surface and work together with the black contour drawings and satin stitched parts to tell a story about imaginary and real beasts, fights, nature, vulnerability and the silk material itself. To complete my work I stitched on the front surface. This way the work's back side remained uncontrolled and at the end added an extra value to discover. The tension of hand stitches transformed the sensitive silk material into a fine silk relief.
