Influenced by the primitive qualities of outsider art and children’s art, Anna Torma creates large-scale hand embroideries. I just stumbled across her work as I’m doing research for my thesis. Browsing through her website, she seems to have quite a bend towards story-telling in the work and draws from life with titles like: Playground I – VI, Memoirs, and Storytelling. With a lot of images on her website, take a quick break and have a look! It’s Friday, take your time and browse!
