Mr X Stitch Presents: Beefranck’s Emporium – Ezgi Genç’s Movie Posters
|Share the love...||
Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace. So without further ado, I welcome you to…
Ezgi Genç is a Turkish artist who makes some wonderful soft sculptures. Recently she started making homages to some of her favorite movies.
Here’s the unmistakable Amelie.
This piece based on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind just thrills me. The scene, the letter – so wonderful. You can tell this movie is one of her favorites.
I had never heard of this movie before. The title roughly translates to “I’m a Cyborg But It’s Okay.” I definitely want to see it now.
She blends 2-D with 3-D in many of her pieces, but this one in particular has a wonderful feel to it. This translates to The Science of Sleep, and looks very interesting movie as well. How often do you see a horse adrift in a boat?
Here we have a movie poster for Women on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown.
And last but not least, one of my favorite movies of all time, My Neighbor Totoro. Eeeeep!
Beefranck is the Queen of Ironic Stitching and is responsible for a lot of stuff on www.mrxstitch.com, the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet. She is also the top selling pattern designer in the MrXStitch etsy store.
She can often be found hanging out in the Phat Quarter group on Flickr and co-hosts Emergency Pants, a podcast that is not for the faint hearted!
