Dance and Threads

Who would have thought that dance and embroidery go so well together. Mixed media artist Jose Ignacio Romussi Murphy from Chile embroiders vintage postcards and playfully brings the dancer’s postures to life.
A simple idea with great effect.
To see more of his dancers, visit Romussi’s flickr and for his mixed media work, visit his website.

    these remind me happily of the cards my grandparents would send from their first trips to Spain in the ’50s, of flamenco dancers with embroidered skirts, head-dresses and fans. how I treasured them! I still have a few and will seek them out and set them on my desk…

    This is jaw-dropping work! I love anything with dance–perhaps it is the little girl still in me, and the memory of many childhood days spent in tutus and ballet slippers. These pieces seem to evoke that slightly stunned feeling I used to have when I actually watched ballet. Thank you so much for sharing them!
