SILHOUETTE CARPET FOR KATHEA

”My carpets are transferred from simple aquarelle sketches.

Subconsciously I keep returning to a theme I have worked on at different periods.

For me the work on Silhouette is just the beginning of a long, exiting journey.

I have worked with textiles and weaving in different contexts before, but never as extensively as with these carpets.

A whole world opens up consisting of different structures, materials, colours and hues.

Carpets are sensual.

They affect the mood in a room.

They affect sound, light and colour.

We walk on them, sometimes with bare feet.

We can rest upon them.”
