Description

Stunning handcrafted off loom bead woven tapestry by jewelry artist Eleanor Wirth.

Measures 4" wide x 4" long

During the bleakest times of the pandemic I went exploring for overlooked materials in my studio. I rediscovered a collection of vintage sequins from France and Belgium. Inspired by the richness of color and the quality of materials used, I began experimenting with these small textile paintings.

Using an intimate scale, this stitched work suggests the spirit and attitude of Antonio Gaudi’s Parc Guell, itself a response to classical English gardens. The center of the piece refers to the lush trees and greenery in its top layer. Look underneath its’ canopy and discover a forest floor representing Gaudi’s fantastical mosaics. The perimeter is a surround of sequined fans that simulate architecture and the topography in and around the park.
