Takashi Iwasaki

Following my purchase of the new Carson Ellis patterns from Sublime Stitching, I took a look at the Sublime Stitching blog. On it there was a post on men who do embroidery; one of the artists featured was Takasi Iwasaki. He works in a number of other media, but I am really into his embroidered pieces. They have a dreamlike visual language reminiscent of Miró, Max Ernst or Dr. Seuss, but still sort of doodle-y and with something very of-the-moment in terms of color and pattern use.
