LAST WEEK I HAVE BEEN TO THE ‘CREATIVA’ IN DORTMUND & LIKE I’VE ALREADY TOLD YOU, THERE WAS NOT MUCH NEWS FOR ME. BUT: ONE ARTIST STOOD OUT – GUDRUN LEITNER! SHE WAS SHOWING HER SEWN ART CANVASSES. APPROACHING HER BOOTH, I THOUGHT THE IMAGES WERE PAINTINGS. BUT AT A CLOSER LOOK I REALIZED, THAT THESE PICTURES WERE ALL SEWN AND DOUBLE- & TRIPPLE-STITCHED. I COULDN’T HELP, BUT ASK THE ARTIST, HOW LONG THESE HUGE CANVASSES TAKE UNTIL THEY ARE WHAT THEY ARE. THE CREATION, THAT TOOK HER THE LONGEST {ABOUT HALF A YEAR} WAS A PORTRAIT OF TWO. TALKING TO HER WAS VERY INSPIRING, BECAUSE SHE IS ONE OF THOSE DRIVEN PEOPLE, WHO LOVE WHAT THEY DO AND PASSIONATELY TALKS ABOUT HER WORK! IF YOU ARE INTERESTED TO BROWSE THROUGH HER ŒVRE, PLEASE VISIT HER SITE OR FACEBOOK  FANPAGE WHERE SHE ALSO DOCUMENTS HER WORK IN PROGRESS.HOPEFULLY, YOU WILL BE AS AMAZED, AS I WAS.
