Embroidering nature: beautifully intricate moss-inspired works by Emma Mattson

In the realm of textile art, Emma Mattson has carved a niche that resonates with the vibrancy of nature itself. Her series of moss embroideries is not just a tribute to the greenery we often overlook but a therapeutic endeavor that intertwines the threads of art and healing. Each piece is a sculptural marvel, crafted with a precision that breathes life into the fabric, transforming hoops of embroidery into lush landscapes. The layers of felt, meticulously arranged, create a three-dimensional effect that invites the viewer to delve into the miniature worlds she conjures.

Mattson’s work is a testament to the power of art to mimic nature’s intricate beauty. The varied textures and shades of green she employs are a visual feast, reminiscent of the moss-covered grounds that inspire her. Through her art, Mattson encourages us to appreciate the small wonders of our environment, to find solace in the details, and to recognize the potential for beauty in the most unassuming places. Her creations are more than just art; they are a call to mindfulness, a reminder to cherish the natural tapestry that is ever-present, yet often ignored.

When making moss embroideries, it’s about creating and building up a scene from nothing or creating a mini landscape. Felt is layered together for three-dimensionality in round shapes and I go from there in a more abstract sense.
