casting stitches on book pages, from the blog of artist Caterina Giglio
“I have been using stitches in my work since 2005 when I hosted my first altered art book group… at that time I used upholstery threads to stitch the page and I loved the way it looked, the texture was outstanding and I was fascinated by the way I was able to create a mark without using a pen or paintbrush…”
Caterina goes on to how explain how the stitches are used strategically, either to create movement, or represent solidarity, or attachment… and even starlight.
I am enthralled by the way she describes the intentionality behind these little marks on paper.
