I may not be able to pronounce her name, but I can tell you that the work of Lithuanian artist Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė blew me away the first time I saw her ‘Good Morning Composition’. I think it is such a clever and inventive concept, and shows she has a sense of humour, too.
Like Matthew Cox and his wonderful combination of mixing the tactile with the technical, Severija is interested in metal – for its sturdiness, weight and malleability, and also textiles – for their softness. She experiments with the two and “finds beauty in the banal”.
Check out some more examples of her gorgeous pieces:
There are a whole series of these fabulous repurposed car-doors in the ‘Way of Roses’ series.
Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė – I love your work.
I suspect if we want a piece of Severija Inčirauskaitė-Kriaunevičienė’s cross-stitched magic here at the bottom of the world, the only way is to go direct to the artist herself. You can access her website here.
(I am off taking a wee sojourn to sunny Queensland over the next few days which means my response times to your comments may be a little slower than usual. I do love hearing from you, so please don’t stop! – It may just take me a little longer to get back to you. Cheers!)
