Amanda McCavour…

Toronto-based artist Amanda McCavour uses a sewing machine to stitch these gorgeous works onto fabric that can be dissolved in water, leaving just the thread behind.  The thread drawings seem so delicate, yet they are quite durable.  The living room installation is […]

Margaret Durow…

See more on her website and Flickr.   (Oh and she has a few bonus GIFs on her site too!) […]
