The Composition on the canvas. Earth

own technique, wool felt, 150x150x7 cm

This multidimensional weaving work is part of the „Composition on the canvas” project. The fabric is structurally based on a repeatedly perforated canvas and spatially interwoven modules. They form a kind of fleece shaped into a harsh landscape.

The work presents an artistic record of the artist’s experiences with nature: severity, changeability, plasticity. Craftmanship here, interweaving is like a physical cultivation of the land, it teaches humility, respect, it calms down and at the same time opens the space of unlimited freedom.
