The Photograph-Like Lace Work of Pierre Fouché

by Danny OldaPosted on

Pierre Fouché could be called a textile artist with the sensibility of a photographer or painter.  Many of his pieces seem to be created by black thread in a lace pattern, yet depict finely detailed images of people.  Though it is likely Fouché could have simply printed photographs of these images, his choice of lace is a significant one.  Its creation in the past often done in the home, requires considerable time and attention to detail.  Further lace is rarely considered “fine art”, but decorative and a craft.  However, Fouché doesn’t limit himself to lace.  He also transforms other everyday objects and materials (such as dice pictured below) for his artwork and vision.
