    2011/H920×W1030/クロスステッチ・刺繍糸・毛糸

    約3年の制作期間を経て完成させた刺繍の大作。
    毛糸やビニール紐など様々な紐類が交ざった本作は、身体の不自由な作者がほぼ自力で材料の調達を行い、コツコツと作りあげました。
    刺繍する毎日から生まれたこの作品は、不規則なようで規則的で見る人を惹きつけるパワフルな作品です。

    This is an embroidered masterpiece. The artist spent about three years to complete it.
    She interweaved various strings made of wool, vinyl and other materials. In spite of her physical difficulties, she managed to collect all the materials by herself and created it diligently.
    This powerful artwork is created by her effort in diligent embroidering everyday.
    It displays complexity in its needlework, where in irregularity, there is also an embodiment of regularity. Viewers are delightedly attracted by its ambiguity.
