In work with one work come ideas of how I can use the leftovers in the next work, either as inspiration or specific clear up work. This is one of my many aspects of work processes.
"I begin, I work, I complete – and start all over – again and again and again"
It all began in a pile of sewing thread. Over the years I’ve experimented with various materials and techniques but always stayed loyal to crochet.
Fashion and Art goes hand in hand. The touch of a fabric bring a sensation, on a canvas with movement and colour it changes its apperance.
A combination of 3D modelling, hand stitching and storytelling in a sculptural art practice.
I often work with my very special textile-collage technique in the form of different parts in black and white. It leads to a look that is tangible and abstract at the same time.
I try to understand the world in my loom and the tapestries become my answer to change. I weave because I want to tell something. I listen, see and meet people. I think, ponder and images arise.
My passion is to sew portraits. I am fascinated by the fact that eyes, nose and mouth can be put together in so many different ways.
Jeg har i mange år jobbet hovedsakelig med vev og konstruksjon som verktøy, innen emner som eksistensialisme og persepsjon. Jeg har min utdanning fra Kunst og Designhøgskolen i Bergen.
The inspiration is from the sea, nature and cities and I work in series that are slowly changing. I work with tapestries and objects. The choice of material is an important part of my work.
I am working and educated in batik and related techniques like dying, printing and collaging. You can call it surface-design. My main interest has been making wall-hangings.
I am translating the life into the language of textiles. Using different wool yarns, natural dyes, forms and structures I am expressing the feeling, emotion, idea or opinion.
My textile works is a release process from the fabric.
A sculptural embroidery with roots from 14 th century, silk and metal embroidery.
Based on a concrete and geometric idiom I work with tapestries. In my compositions, I use lines and shapes to achieve a tension and a spatial effect, with inspiration drawn from architecture.
My technique is weaving. My tapestries are line-drawings like graphic. I like to draw, black lines on white, white lines on black and tones between those. My textiles are my way of thinking.
