i’m jealous of maria aparicio {and friends}

Gasp! I’m dying… DYING! I absolutely love this work by Maria Aparicio… and friends. All of these pieces are collaborations with various photographers. They supply the stunning images, and she supplies the soul-crushing, jealousy-inducing embroidery. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to sit down so I can catch my breath. Um, you may want to call 911. Thank you.

    Great find! Not only are they gorgeous (and geometric, which i adore), they leave me with a strange sensation of being pulled. Similar feeling to having your clothing snagged on something. Its an interested discomfort and pleasure after looking at these pieces.

    Agreed. I actually gasped when I saw the first image. Thank you for sharing!

    I like that phrase “interested discomfort and pleasure”

    So GENIUS!! I love these so much I want to cry. Well, actually I want to go dig through all of my embroidery floss and make some art.

    You find the best of the best!

    i did both… a few tears, and a bunch of art making! {hard to do at the same time!}
