Naomi Ryder is an illustrator who specializes in embroidery. I had no idea this type of art existed! I’m glad that I found out. She is currently exhibiting in London. Here is a bit of info about her latest exhibit:
Textile designer and illustrator Naomi Ryder will be exhibiting her latest embroidered curtains at the Jubilee Window Gallery in Canary Wharf’s Retail Mall from 4 to 29 May.
These three panels of silk chiffon are delicately embroidered with line drawings inspired by everyday life. Naomi captures a woman’s daily routine by creating a visual narrative based around the day in the life of a friend. Images show her climbing out of bed, getting dressed, washing, putting her make up and follow her throughout the day – from going to work, to coming home, to doing the cleaning. Naomi takes these simple moments in time, that we take for granted, and captures their ephemeral beauty on each fabric panel.
