I recently came across Faig Ahmed’s embroidery installations, the beautiful pastel embroidery threads project onto a wall coming through mid air, creating an intricate pattern. Faig takes traditional arts of tapestry and needlepoint and creates pieces that have an edgy unraveled appeal.
“I’ve been always fond of investigating and researching every detail of anything that had interested me, and sometimes this research reaches inconceivable depths mixing up with my imagination,” explains the artist. “That’s why I’m changing habitual and visually static objects making them spatial, giving them a new depth. And this ‘as if’ reveals the essence of this object—the object that was mediocre just a minute ago.”
His work is beautiful and the linear designs mixed with an intricate pattern intrigues me.
