Karen Nicol : Solo Show


What do textiles, geography and animals have in common? At first glance, not much, but Karen Nicol - an embroiderer whose reputation is well established in the fashion and art world - has managed to combine thousands of different elements to create delightful works of art, full of the most colourful details, notably in her latest series of maps of cities and continents. Multicoloured fabrics, printed vintage photographs or tattoo motifs: everything becomes a pretext for bringing to life in her maps the fauna, flora and landscapes that form the geography of the places that inspire her. With clients ranging from Givenchy and McQueen to celebrities such as Rooney Mara, the King of Qatar and the Pope, Karen Nicol has amazed the world with her expertise and imagination.
