Inspiration of the day

I recently discovered the work of artist Takashi Iwasaki. The embroidery series is breathtaking. I cannot help but be attracted to this kind of work. I think it all started with my great grandmother, who was an incredible embroidery artist. She would create reenactments of the world around her in these elaborate and very large pieces. There were many she made from her memory of her home in Czechoslovakia, but would sometimes make pieces of my family home. Those are especially important to me. I will try to get a hold of an image to share.
