susanna bauer


Ok. I seriously don’t even know where to start. Leaves hand-sewn into perfect cubes? Delicate embroidery that transforms leaves into doilies? It’s all just too beautiful and perfect. I wrote about the sticks, stones, and leaves {way back in 2012} of German-born, UK based artist Susanna Bauer, but wow, she just keeps pushing the leafy envelope. Stunning.

If you’d like to see these delicate beauties in person, Susanna has shows coming up this March in New York {March 11 ~ April 16 at the Muriel Guepin Gallery}, and in the UK {March 2 ~ May 26 at the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World}.

    This is wonderful! I have to say, the moment I found this site- which was only a few nights ago- I’ve been hooked. What an amazing artist Susanna is! I can’t imagine how tedious sewing leaves would’ve been- but the result is completely worthwhile. Thank you for sharing!

    So beautiful! I love every essence and truth of your art, Helen! I’ve officially stumbled upon a much-needed rabbit hole here at the Jealous Curator. Amazing community, and hope as an artist and for my future in creativity and connection. <3
