Suzy Strindberg, Embroidery, 1999
Silk, linen

Over the past two decades, Suzy Strindberg has embroidered exceedingly small pictures of lush, green landscapes. Her stitches are minute. The material is very thin silk. The scenes are created with thread according to a sketch, which she only refers to sporadically. In some sections the thread is multi-layered, creating a three-dimensional effect. The process is slow and painstaking. Strindberg embroiders in periods, letting the work rest before resuming it. She often undoes parts that she is not entirely satisfied with and starts over. The process includes an element of meditation.
