Artist Nastasja Duthois creates large installations and small-scale embroidered artworks that explore aspects of shadow and negative space. Though composed of thousands of straight sewn lines reminiscent of crosshatching, the final pieces are generally organic in form from the silhouettes of dogs and animals to more complex landscapes.

You can see more of her work over on BASE and on her website. She shades and creates depth in her work by layering threads one on top of the other, creating more or less space between lines by bunching them closer together or spacing them further apart.

She creates pieces that range in size, some installations are huge, while others are tiny, but all of them follow the same principles of space and thread.
