  • gwendolynne

    I think the influence of Amy Cutler’s work needs to be noted here.

  • Cody

    Somebody likes Marcel Dzama and Amy Cutler…

    • so

      haha so true

  • Ha, these are hilarious.
    So subtle, I’d love to frame them and hang them in unexpected places in my apartment for a nice surprise when I would forget about them.

  • these are so fun!

  • Addi

    These are all so dainty and lovely.
    They have hidden meanings, each one.
    Although the third one puzzles me…
    Does anyone have any idea what the motivation behind this one was?

  • so

    oh how adorable

  • lapetitefaon

    The last one is absolutely brilliant. They are all so pretty and perfect!

  • I really love the first two works, i think ur works are meaningful, i love the way you handled the material and subject, i’m looking forward to see more!:)

  • druien

    struggling to not feel slighty irritated about a clear rip-off of amy cutler. anyone? anyone?

    • lapetitefaon

      Wow, I had never heard of her and just google image searched and you are right, I can definitely see that. Though I have to say Amy Cutler’s stuff is so detailed and well, I kind of love it that much more!!! Thanks for turning me onto a great artist!

  • Gwendolynne

    Druien:
    I felt the same way when I saw them… it fully irritates me as I am a big fan of Cutler’s work.

Experimental Artist Petros Vrellis Creates Detailed Portraits With A Single Thread

 

Born in Greece, with a background in Electrical Engineering as well as Art Science, artist Petros Vrellis has a passion for creating interactive installations that blend art and technology. His latest project is a mesmerizing re-imagining of traditional handicraft.

Using a 28″ aluminum-rimmed loom, Petros runs a single thread from one anchor peg to another to create just the right density and darkening at precise intersections. The end result is a detailed image that emerges from 3000 – 4000 continuous loops (or 1-2 kilometers of thread)!

While Petros is following a set pattern developed from a computer-generated algorithm, as you can see in the time-lapsed video above, the step-by-step process is all done by hand. We had the chance to speak with Petros about his experimental process and why hand-made work still has a place in the digital age. Check out the full interview below!
