Australian designer Suzie Stanford has been collecting old, quirky tapestries that she then turns into wonderful upholstered works of art! The art of tapestry appears to be on the rise, with a growing number of artists taking it into new directions. As she says in her artist statement, “I collect in a magpie-like fashion from auction houses, curio shops and flea markets around the world. I dont think I really make anything new. I just make new connections. I put things together which are not supposed to be together and hope that by my works celebration of colour and the juxtaposing the old with the new, my pieces make people smile.” Time to redecorate!
