i’m always jealous of emily barletta

Drawings? No.  Prints? No.  Embroidery on paper? Yes.

I think I’ve written about every series that New York based artist Emily Barletta has ever done. And every time I think “Wow. That’s amazing. I can’t get more jealous than this.” … and then, she gets me again. Look at this work?! Embroidery on paper. Crazy, detailed, meticulous, perfectly chosen bits of colored thread {how does she get them to almost fade in and out of each other?!} working together to create beautifully bizarre mounds and hills that make me say, “Wow. That’s amazing. I can’t get more jealous than this.”

ps. Emily is one of the artists in my book, and I could not be more thrilled, and honored, that she is involved!

    Beautiful work. Truly amazing and precise
    Embroiderer’s trick: buy varigated thread. The colours automatically fade from one to the other. 😉
