In this textile artwork, not only the composition of shape and color is a significant element but also the intentionally used gaps and open spaces. The organic forms that emerged from my individual approach contrast with the dominance of right angles imposed by the fabric's structure.
Starting from the historical tapestry weaving technique, the fabric is strained in its rectilinear structure of rows and columns. By varying the tension and pull of the threads, the work intentionally disrupts the fabric's structure.
The linen warp yarn grid that serves as the foundation of the fabric remains partially visible to the viewers. This reveals the tensile strength of the wool yarn within the warp and unveils a shifted weaving structure.
Like in the traditional approach, the fabric grows from bottom to top, but the even spaces between the warp threads are varied during the production process. The composition develops intuitively, with recurring abstract color and shape elements emerging without prior sketches, through the process and the material itself.
Engaging with weaving techniques that I constantly reinterpret and expand, this work also represents a reimagining of a historical weaving technique.
