About this artwork

Inspired by Evelyn Nesbit - a model, chorus girl, and actress - artists Ani and Andrew Abakumov created her portrait in their vintage look. At first glance, an association arises with one of the paintings of Rossetti, whose favorite was a certain type of beauty and femininity - sublime, gentle, detached, balanced, and mysterious, says Ani.Ani and Andrew work together to create their signature series of fiber artworks. Andrew, a mathematician and programmer, developed an algorithm that creates a blueprint for each new piece. He also prepares each canvas by driving nails into the perimeter of the surface. Ani then strings different colored and sized thread layer upon layer, from hours to months until the image appears. She uses anywhere from 4 km to 20 km of the material for a single piece.
