Screen-print on silk, embroidery
1 in stock
Made from hand dyed silk fabric, with many layers of screen printing and embroidery. In a very repetitive process, similar to collage, I embroider tiny cross-stitches that cover the printed surface. The embroidery is inspired by Hallandssöm which is made up of geometric pattern shapes, the bottom seam is varied in material and shape. The images are built up of different fragments and become a poetic observation of changes in everyday life and our surroundings. The houseplants are a part of everyday life; everyday life is like a textile pattern that constantly repeats itself. It is a glimpse of a fleeting moment before it disappears.
