The Embroidered Mythology Of Michelle Kingdom!

michelle kingdom, embroidered art Craft.  If you consider craft to be the black sheep of “real art” think again. Craft is the viceral, the hand-hewn and, as we are about to see… craft can be the most disarming form of expression.

Michelle Kingdom “paints” in thread.  Her embroidery is beyond belief.  The nuances, the movement, the detail, the storytelling…

I happened upon it at on an art blog,  and now I can’t get enough of the myth, legend and personal truth she packs into every small, intricate artwork.  This work is not only a universe onto itself, it can help you re-think your own approach to hobbies… claiming mediums like clay, string, yarn, ribbon, paper and elevating them to new heights!

Total sea-scape majesty. Its like the stitches become liquid, pouring…

Expressive yarn. How incredible to capture the face of a dreamer down to the last detail of a slipper.

This refines the idea of the “energetic cords” that can bind us together.

Something awesome happens when you couch difficult themes in spools of glossy thread: suddenly you can face ideas too confronting and unsettling to see perhaps in photographs or even read in words.

Use craft to work out your life concerns.  Play with more hobbies and personalize your work. Watch your own mythologies come to life.
