Metinota Rushes, 2022
One of the biggest threadpaintings I've created to date!
The shallow, marsh end of the lake where I grew up was always a popular spot to fish. It was full of life: ducks, geese, songbirds, pelicans, muskrat, beaver... the list goes on and on. Hawks would circle while rodents scrurried through. The patches of wetlands surrounding the lake were amazing ecosystems. As mom drove us to the beach on hot summer days (pre-air conditioning), I always wondered how on earth people managed to pave those skinny little roads through these soggy areas. At times, getting from point A to point B felt like a near death experience, with no shoulders and giant potholes!
*Please note: the art colours should be fairly accurate, however all screens read differently.
Medium: Fibre (freehand machine stitching on batik and hand dyed fabric). The ducks are hand stitched.
Art Size: approx 16" w x 13" h
Colour: Matt black
Matting: none. Spacers were used between art and glass.
Glass: non reflective
Signed by artist, dated, wired to hang.
All thread paintings of this size are signed by hand with needle and thread by Monika, in the lower corner of the embroidery.
Avoid permanent display in direct sunlight. Clean glass with a dry cloth. If using a cleaner, spray the cloth instead of the glass to avoid damaging the matting and artwork.
I ship my artwork in clean, repurposed cardboard and packing marterials whenever I can. This means you will find bubble wrap that I choose not to throw away, and silly looking boxes on occasion. There's no harm in that. The most important thing in our transaction is that your art arrives in great condition. I do ask that you repurpose my materials if you are able as well.
Thank you for your interest in my work!
