Embroidery on a leaf by Solange Nunes

Artist Solange Nunes thinks outside the hoop by embroidering on a precarious material—dried leaves. Taking on their brittle and delicate surface, she stitches colorful bouquets on the brown backgrounds. The juxtaposition she’s created is exciting in more ways that one. Visually, the bright hues cause the leaves to pop, but the concept is what makes them truly alluring; the embroidery depicts living blooms on something dead and acts like a memorial for the colorful life the leaf once lived.

Solange sells a selection of her work on Elo7.

Solange Nunes brings brittle nature back to life with embroidery on leaves.
