32 String Art Installations

From Threaded Nail Portraits to Surreal Silk Vortexes

— June 1, 2012 — Art & Design
Delicate and meticulous are the words most fitting for these incredible string art installations. The fragile nature of the medium and works requires appreciation from both afar and up close.

These types of installations are normally scenery-specific due to the sculptures' fragile disposition. Artists will carefully thread each strand by hand within the location or studio. Some pieces are wall-climbing environments, while others are woven onto traditional canvases and furnishings. The impermanent nature of the installations demonstrates time and decay as an integral part of the world around us. These works will deteriorate as they are displayed, which is part of the artist's process and goal. From afar, these works appear to be masses of enttralling color; however, as you get closer, you will come to appreciate the deligent craftsmanship behind the sculptures.

These remarkable examples of sting art installations will enthrall and amaze viewers.
