Margreeth's Mirror

This entry to A Mirror To My Art by Margreeth from the Netherlands I found particularly affecting. There is always something very special about a stitched work that is inspired by personal memories. Margreeth simply states, It's about me and my father and me growing up, I see myself in the mirror how I am now - Perhaps here you can enjoy the subtle calm and controlled sentiment of this miniature work of art - for that is what it certainly is my eyes. It is a masterpiece of composition and design - its evanescent, impressionistic image urgently captured by a net of precisely laid stitches.  I really love this one and would love to see more work by Margreeth - maybe an exhibition?

  1. I'm finding many of the mirrors more beautiful and touching as I'm reading about the story behind them and seeing the close ups. This one in particular.
