CHECK IT OUT: Sew and Tell by Maya Calica Collins at La Pomme
Stringing words and stitching images
(SPOT.ph) Taking the expression "weaving a story" to literal levels, former magazine editor Maya Calica Collins, now a freelance writer, editor, and storyteller, has added "artist" to her list of talents. Sew and Tell is a whimsical take on the classic illustrated children’s storybook, where embroidery replaces traditional illustration. Each stitched piece comes with a short story (or a limerick, in the case of "Hanky Panky"), with the themes teetering from family ties to surreal adventures (like a cat who wants to go to Paris in "The Guilt Trip"). Collins has 15 artworks on display from August 10 to September 10 at La Pomme in The Collective, Makati.
Here are a few of our favorites:
"The Enchanted Saya"
The Guilt Trip
La Pomme is at The Collective, Malugay Street, Makati-far right corner of the block.
