Uta│K – Line by line with pen and thread: paper embroidery
« In my work, essential formal aspects are inextricably linked to my professional experience as a set designer and interior designer. Accordingly, my biographical embroideries contain drawn topographical and urban planning data and plan excerpts as well as fragments of photos and poetry, which I combine with pen and thread on paper. Sewing as one of the oldest crafts in human history, and in addition to its functionality, also has an artistic and aesthetic significance. Sewing on paper is patiently drawing on paper with a needle and thread. Every stitch and every line is considered carefully.
In the Blaue Serie (2021) I first colored the paper with watering the paper in blue ink in dipping processes of different lengths. After the drying process, the sheet was further processed according to the method described above.
The photos and portraits in Blaue Serie1 (2021), Blaue Serie 2 (2021), and in Irmis Männer (2020) are close family members, their aging, their handwriting, their identifying things and places. »
