'A captured moment of an instinctive feeling, a static moment of a fall with extra force where it ends and decomposes'.
'Tactile Intuition' 2017 is the culmination of a two year period of experiments on the double cloth technique. The beginning of this process followed a systematic and vigorous approach to this technique. Gradually with a profound experimentation moved beyond it’s limitations to present a different and unexpected freedom with which I could express myself through thread. My aim was to capture a moment of an instinctive feeling and translate it into a woven 'landscape'. To create a liberated more symbolic weave which appears to be detached from the loom and the weaver.
100% fishnet cotton

Mounds of cotton strands and bundles of cotton fishnet yarn are endlessly assembled in this hanging installation. The wall-piece hangs heavily from a solid brass rod, emphasizing the downfall weight of the piece like a cascade, creating a spatial 'environment'. A thick cotton warp and weft in two custom dyed colours create an irregular structure suggestive of a secret instinctive surrounding. The custom dyed colours symbolize a magnetic groundness, creating a monolithic landscape with a profound echo.
