What embroidery fabric?
In the first chapter we will see why to change canvas and in the second: the choice of Aida or Linen weaving.
- eyesight is failing and an easier one is needed
- the color does not please
- the color does not match his house
- the embroiderer has doubts about the relevance of the designer’s choice…
- I leave less room a priori for a “together”, there is only the pattern.
- I leave less room for a strong emotion that would be given by a colored canvas.
I invite you to get out of the usual opposition between these two canvases, Linen and Aida, by approaching the question in another way.
- A matte white cotton canvas takes us into a raw universe, without mystery. One could say by using metaphor that it is something that is played in the indicative, that is to say in the present.
- A natural 14-ply linen brings its texture and its warm grey/beige/heather towards something vintage. We evoke what was, it is a kind of past made up of embroidery.
- with flax we tell the story by “Once upon a time” with its procession of adjectives
- while the aida stands in the action in progress, with subject/verb/object.
- 14 sons: “As my gaze jumped from cloud to cloud in the azure sky of this early spring, making me lose track of time, I realized that my steps had taken me unconsciously, in front of my house.”
- 5.5 pts: “(My reverie brings me) I arrive in front of my house”
