Elodie Antonie Draws Nuclear Landscapes With Humble Black Thread
Posted By Ana Lisa On April 5, 2012 @ 3:20 pm In Art,Design | 1 Comment
Using only thread as her drawing tool, Belgium artist Elodie Antonie  illustrates big structures and industrial landscapes carefully by hand. Cranes, electric pylons, bridges and even nuclear landscapes  are represented simply using only the humble material, and they are brought to life by traditional lace-making techniques that add some femininity to their depictions. Where the overbearing, man-made structures meet the delicate craft, Antonie  has found a space to celebrate the hidden beauty of the monstrous in an unusual way.
Using a continuous line drawing  method, Elodie Antonie creates black and white landscapes of desolate nature. Combining straight and organic lines with thread knots in a balanced way, the Belgium artist gives life to some fantastic large-scale monuments.
Delicate and humble, yet visually strong, these massive structures around us become as fragile  as thread.
