Artist : Matthew Harris

I come across Matthew Harris's work again and again these days and I'm always drawn into learning more. I love the repetition throughout his work and of course, that he works with fiber and stitching.

In addition to fiber, Harris has made some beautiful works on paper. Incredibly beautiful and rich, amazing that these are of paper, he has that rare ability to cross mediums effortlessly.

Stunning work and some stunning words to accompany them here. See more of his work here. Okay, one more, perhaps my favorite.

Thanks for these images... - I go to his site to look at his works frequently, a never ending inspiration - but haven´t been aware of the paper works really... I especially like the Temple Notebook...
