Traditional Lace Patterns Turn to Paintings Installed in Public Spaces

NeSpoon is a talented artist from Warsaw, Poland, that uses traditional lace patterns in most of her artworks, and translates them into ceramics, stencils, and paintings installed in public spaces. 

She called her art “public jewelry,” a type of decoration by transforming abandoned spaces into something aesthetically pleasing.

“In laces there is an aesthetic code, which is deeply embedded in every culture. In every lace we find symmetry, some kind of order and harmony,” NeSpoon shared.

Her public paintings can be as enormous as multi-story urban buildings and her yarn pieces hang onto trees and passageways like huge spiderwebs. Her recent works include a mural for Musée des Beaux-arts, Alençone, France, based on the designs of French lace makers Brigitte Lefebvre and Thérèse Lemoine and installation at the International Exhibition of Contemporay Art 2018.
