This past semester I have been taking a Color in Embroidery course that focuses on the various ways that color is used and manipulated throw thread. I completed a research project on the famous artist, Paul Gauguin, focusing on his use of color and how he drastically changed the way artists at the time used color. Then, I applied the research that I collected on Gauguin, and constructed a color gradation inspired by the artist. Gauguin is known for his use of vibrant color choices and depth in his compositions. Based on these two aspects of Gauguin, I used solvy and machine embroidery to create layers of flat color to suspend in front of one another in a landscape style.
