So this is it. My grad work. Finally I am posting this.
It’s called "Ab ovo", which can be vaguely translated from Latin as “from the very beginning”. It’s a classic tapestry woven using cotton, wool, acryle, lurex and god knows what else, which measures 2,2 x 3,3 m and took me about 6 months of on and off work.
This is the largest work I’ve ever made and, by far, the most labor intensive. It received highly positive reviews during the grad show and was graded A+ by the board. After all the effort, I really was so, so relieved.
Don’t you mind me, I’m just there for scale : ) (But do check out my dress!)
Congrats! I remember seeing your original sketches while you were planning it and it turned out amazing. I’m glad all your hard work paid off! Hopefully you have some time to relax and unwind after all the stress its creation caused? Congratulations again Nadya!
Wow! It’s an absolutely beautiful tapestry, and what a piece of art! Congratulations! It definitely deserves that A+!
