Stitched Sculptural Objects By Doug Johnston

Working in the realms of art, design, architecture and music, artist Doug Johnston created a series of stitched sculptural objects titled ‘Ropework Compendium’.

“There is an inherent lack of precision and stability with the process, making each piece unique and often causing the forms to divert far from their original concept.” Made entirely from rope, the abstract pieces are part of an ongoing project Johnston has been working on since 2010, channeling his professions of being a designer, artist and craftsman into creating the artworks. The pieces are currently on display at Patrick Parrish Gallery in New York City.

Speaking about the process behind the stitched pieces, the artist says: “With this process I use my sewing machines like analog 3D printers, creating a variety of sculptural and functional objects. There is an inherent lack of precision and stability with the process, making each piece unique and often causing the forms to divert far from their original concept.”
