Attachments

I am in awe over the needlepoint lace creations by Toronto-based artist Dorie Millerson. Her work addresses and questions topics like family, fragility and home. Millerson is also "concerned with the themes of attachment and memory" and "adapts textile techniques in order to explore these concepts." As a result, both the process and the form of the pieces become equally important in presenting her ideas. These thought provoking works are stunning and inspiring.

Wouldn't you love to see them in person? Check out more work by Dorie Millerson here.
