Wall drawings using pins and threads by UK artist Debbie Smyth. The drawings are first plotted to give an outline of the image then a network of threads are stretched between accurately plotted pins. Smyth's artworks blurs the boundaries between fine art drawings and textile art, flat and 3D work, illustration and embroidery.
On first glance, it can look like a mass of threads but as you get closer, sharp lines come into focus creating a spectacular image. The images are first plotted out before being filled out with the thread, the sharp angles contrasting with the floating ends of the thread. And despite the complexity of the lengthy process, I try to capture a great feeling of energy and spontaneity and, in some cases, humor.
