Nastasja Duthois is known for embroidered silhouette art that marries traditional hand-sewing techniques with contemporary graphics. The artist displays her intricate works in large installations that illustrate a great amount of visual detail.

Putting focus on color and detail, Nastasja creates cross-hatched motifs of wolves, foxes and lakeside views. The artist’s works offer the perfect balance of technique and mood and are often emotive or dark in their overall theme.

Nastasja Duthois creates layered thread compositions that explore a complex relationship between positive and negative spaces. The pieces depict human, animal and landscape subject matter and are filled with character and personality.

The impressive works look best when displayed in exhibits of a large scale and look striking when juxtaposed with modern or classical architecture.
