Landscapes include a myriad of colors and textures, and art helps bring out their innate beauty. Artist Anna Hutina.k.a Olander Co Embroidery, captures the diversity of Colorado’s environment through its abstract embroidery. She renders grassy fields, vibrant flowers and tiny animals using a variety of stitches and threads.
“As a child, I never thought the landscape of Colorado was so beautiful, but in an effort to put my roots in this place, I observed closely the textures of the grasses and reeds in the foothills and plains and I made art out of it,” says Hultin. Modern dish. She uses abstraction to highlight a particular part of the landscape so that it appears to float against a white background. Sometimes these landscapes even “dribble” from the hoop. “By bringing to life the tumultuous beauty I see in what would generally be considered a monotonous landscape, I offer my audience a new framework from which to view their surroundings.”
From cows grazing on a verdant hillside to a flock of birds soaring across a blue sky, Hultin lets each of these little worlds shine through with thoughtful editing. “Life, art and land have become inextricably linked in my life,” she explains. “Whether I’m embroidering every plant that grows in my garden or the textures of the vast plains of Colorado, I’m constantly exploring what it means to find a place on this earth.”
