Textile artist based in Belarus Yulia Krishchik imagine surreal dreamscapes inspired by the wonders of space and nature. She combines vibrant gardens and tranquil blue streams with visions of colorful planets and galaxies in incredible hand embroidery art.
Each of his compositions is divided in two between an earthly oasis below and an arch of astronomical views above. Krishchick intentionally combines these two elements so close to each other to create a sense of intimacy in the design. “The idea of a universal connection inspires me a lot. Nothing in the world stands out,” the artist tells My Modern Met. “Everything in the universe is a continuous network of threads. My works reflect this idea – it’s a kind of allegory of touching the universe with my own hands and eyes.
Krishchick uses a variety of embroidery techniques and materials to try to imitate the effect of oil and watercolor in his works. Using three-dimensional mediums, however, she is able to create art that she can not only interact with visually but also tactilely. For example, planets and spiral galaxies typically feature felt webs, while blooming flowers are made of thick dots sticking out of the hoop.
