Threading Men

Shaun Kardinal
Found via a blog, collage pieces which use postcards and threads. I like the layering that he uses with images and the mixed media use. The threads are subtle in some of the images, unlike the first one below where it is quite a statement. I am also a fan of his photography which can be found on his portfolio website.

The approach that Shaun has used reminds me of Peter Crawleys work, which I have followed for a while. He uses thread to create pieces of work by threading it through paper. He has created  range of architectural and typographic work all using the same approach, a simple approach that is bold and striking. 

Made with over 6000 holes, Ampersand- thats true dedication to work.

Detail of image.

Colour piece- just as striking and visually effective as black/white pieces.
