Poetic needlework

  • • Clémentine masters a wide range of needle techniques
  • • Her embroideries reflect natural landscapes
  • • She finds inspiration in different crafts

Clémentine Brandibas explores the art of embroidery by uniting beauty with subtlety; she expresses her sensitivity through her poetic needlework. Drawing her inspiration from nature, in all its richness, Clémentine’s paintings reflect organic landscapes and her palette of diverse tones and various textures invites us to contemplate nature's beauty. The illusion of embroidery fades under the finesse of her gesture. Clémentine masters a wide range of needle techniques, as well as dyeing and painting on silk. Self-taught, she subtly diverts and interprets the different methods. Feathers are one of her favourite materials: she has developed her own technique, “marouflage of feathers”, through which she skillfully works on cuts and shades.
