Colorful Fabric Creatures

Sanctuary by Louise Saxton is filled with stunningly artistic interpretations of animals both big and small. Forgoing the usual art supplies such as paint and even paper, this artist uses vibrant and textured fabric and tulle to depict birds, insects and more.

Currently exhibiting at the Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne, Australia, Sanctuary by Louise Saxton puts a modern spin on the traditional domestic artforms of knitting, crochet, embroidery and quilting. Saxton writes, “My current body of work reinterprets natural history and botanical paintings, reflecting the potential loss, of both species within the natural world and traditions within the home.” By using vintage fabrics, she also strives to create sustainable artwork that addresses the past.
