Peter Crawley

Though immediately impressive for their clean lines and vision, Peter Crawley’s detailed architectural illustrations become even more knee slapping once you discover that they aren’t drawn in traditional pen and ink, but sewn with thread.   Each piece is a testament to modern embroidery where in Crawley has learned that in the schematical world of architectural rendering, using a medium that plays like connect the dots makes for perfect lines and crushing angles.  Working entirely on heavy gauge watercolor paper, he first pierces the paper with a pin composing each “line”, then he threads the image by hand.  Crawley also forays into some more organic forms in his other works, but I think his thread and paper approach lends itself best to his buildings series.
