About this artwork

This is a portrait of Hollywood actress Ella Raines made with 5 km of thread, shares artists Ani and Andrew Abakumov. The 'evil' look of the actress does not frighten, on the contrary, it is attractive and desirable. At the same time, through the threads, she breathes, pulsates, and hypnotizes us. A pure hypnotic spirit that brings us closer to her character.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.
