Serbian and French artists Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille, collaborators for over twenty years, build their painting-on-painting technique with a uniquely liberated and conceptual approach.
Tursic & Mille
Enrobed in yellow Taurillon leather and two floral-shaped panels, Tursic and Mille’s Artycapucines features detailed stitches and rich paint for sensory immersion, evoking the duo’s passion for melding together different mediums. Complete with a wood handle, the model nods to the artists' canvases.
Exemplifying unique savoir-faire, thousands of embroidery stitches reproduce brushstrokes from the artists’ 2021 painting, Tenderness, which are then meticulously printed onto the bag’s front panel in vibrant hues, to accentuate its depth. This process is repeated on the rear panel to transpose a kaleidoscopic palette, in a conceptual representation of perpetually starting over. “That work is from a series of 'sentimental' paintings, which draw on the iconographic source of advertising images from the 1950s.” - Ida Tursic and Wilfried Mille
