On my second night in Bratislava I was invited to another private view. An exhibition in a really lovely gallery space at Gallery X. Lithuanian textile artist Jurate Petruskeviciene.
This work explores the rare and special plant life found at a small Lithuanian nature reserve, using shibori techniques and dyeing to create beautiful explorations of nature and the natural form.
Jurate Petruskeviciene was able to speak English and so I was able to talk to her about her techniques which was fantastic. really fascinating. Although I have previously considered and experimented with shibori dyeing I have not considered using stitched polyester to create 3 dimensional shapes and forms before and I am not really excited about the possibilities.
Another inspiring exhibition!
