483,422 stitches compose an otherworldly landscape by Marina Perez Simāo.
With her first textile work Perez Simāo explores the liminal zone between abstraction and figuration, reimagining an archetypal sunset as a series of fluid yet sharp-edged shapes. The edition translates the formal language of her lyrical oil paintings, inspired by the undulating landscapes of Brazil, into an embroidered tapestry in 24 colours. From thread to framing, each element of the artwork is crafted and assembled in Lyon – a historic cradle for artisanal French textiles.
Proceeds from the collaboration will support the work of Gallery Climate Coalition and ClientEarth.
