Every now and then I stumble upon a new artist that has me instantly transfixed. Sophie Lécuyer is definitely one of those artists – I have a feeling I will be returning to her work again and again.

Amanda McCavour

Amanda McCavour creates these installation pieces using a sewing machine and thread. Because thread is so thin and flat, the final piece looks like a colored pencil drawing that has been taken off the paper.

Artist Statement:

“In my work, I use a sewing machine to create thread drawings and installations by sewing into a fabric that dissolves in water. This fabric makes it possible for me to build up the thread by sewing repeatedly into my drawn images so that when the fabric is dissolved, the image can hold together without a base. These thread images appear as though they would be easily unraveled and seemingly on the verge of falling apart, despite the works actual raveled strength.

I am interested in the vulnerability of thread, its ability to unravel, and its strength when it is sewn together.  I am interested in the connections between process and materials and the way that they relate to images and spaces.  Tracing actions and environments through a process of repetition, translation and dissolving, I hope to trace absence.  My work is a process of making as a way of tracing and preserving things that are gone, or slowly falling apart.”

Glass sculptures by Shayna Leib. To create each sculpture, Leib pulls over a mile of thin glass and cuts it into tens of thousands of pieces. Check out the process here.

Ronald Searle

“Morbid Anatomies”  by Ronald Searle. Note the artist’s ink-pen shoes up top!

Searle is one of my very favorites; I’ve posted about him before, and in all likelihood I’ll be posting about him again soon.
