Normally I like to feature only one or two artists at a time on Featured Friday, but this week I decided on a theme as works by various artists caught my eye and I really wanted to share these particular ones with you. They do have one thing in common: they are all made with thread. Don’t expect any old cross-stitching here (not that there’s anything wrong with that!). Get prepared to be blown away:

This colourful installation by Anne Lindberg (via My Modern Met) absolutely bursts with movement. It looks so intangible, almost as if we are looking at a glimps of something from another dimension (or maybe I should just stop watching SCIFI).

Gabriel Dawe’s Plexus no 4 is just breathtaking. Like seeing a rainbow through the mist…

Sébastien Preschoux’ Nocturnes transforms the humble thread into spectacular searchlights at night.

Chiharu Shiota’s work may not be to everyones taste, but I absolutely adore it. This haunting work featured here on My Modern Met. Do check out the website.

And look how Debbie Smyth uses thread as a tool for drawing. I especially like her shaded works

Have a great weekend, everyone!
