Fragility of Nature in Knotted Embroidery Threads by Meredith Woolnough

Meredith Woolnough’s Embroideries Mimic Delicate Forms of Nature nature embroidery

Meredith Woolnough is a visual artist that works and lives near the coastal region of Newcastle NSW, Australia.

Her elegant embroidered traceries capture the beauty and fragility of nature in knotted embroidery threads. The work explores the sculptural possibilities of a unique drawing technique that utilises a domestic sewing machine and a base fabric that dissolves in water. By repeatedly stitching threads into dense structures Meredith creates intricate and complex openwork compositions that are then carefully suspended in space with pins casting delicately dynamic shadows.

Meredith’s work is held in both private and corporate collections worldwide.
