The vastness of the sea, the drama of the mountains, the softness of a lake landscape, the security of a valley or the density of a forest. It is not surprising that artists of all origins have always been fascinated by the experience of landscapes. In Europe, for example, landscape painting has been an independent art form since the Renaissance and in Asian cultures landscale depiction dates back to the 6th century. The concept of Land Art, which originated in the 1980s, abstracts nature by artists using elements such as stone, wood or pigments to create a subjective interpretation of nature.
This collection is the result of a search for traces of this artistic exploration of nature, whether through the sweeping view of landscape silhouettes or through a very close observation of the sensual nature of original surfaces such as earth, water, sand, stone, wood or moss.
Thus LAKEVIEW shows quite vividly an idealised lake landscape. ELDORADO is an abstract work of art inspired by a mythical landscape, for which metallic pigments were applied by hand between elaborately embroidered stripe motifs. The fine horizontal stripes of CANYON play with the colour gradient of multi-coloured rock formations of canyons and deserts. Like a blurred landscape in the distance, PANORAMA also has a vibrating colour gradient. The expressive plain fabrics HILLSTRIPE, NOMAD, PAMIR, BIRCHWOOD and SAHARI are reminiscent of lavender fields, moss, birch bark or sand dunes.
PERSONAL LANDSCAPES picks up on the sensual relationship between humans and nature and transfers it to another form of landscape, namely the residential landscape, which today more than ever is, like nature, a place of familiarity and relaxation.
Inspired by the art of Japanese landscape watercolours,
LAKEVIEW shows an idealised lake scene with a crane,
the Asian symbol for happiness and longevity, as the main motif. The floating weft threads on the front emphasise the elaborate, hand crafted production technique and really highlight the motifs. This is a textile masterpiece with impressive artistic expression.
This abstract work of art is inspired by ELDORADO, the legendary golden landscape. The beauty of the special embroidery is enriched by hand-painted brush strokes, which are applied individually with metallic pigments.
This extraordinary textile is modelled on the unmistakable relief of birch bark and has a particularly vivid effect through the combination of several weaving and printing techniques. Against the light, the different transparencies create a lively play of shadows.
NOMAD's woolly soft, three-dimensional texture reflects the original characteristics of a highland plain where mountain plants, mosses, lichens and rocky areas form a harmonious carpet of colour nuances and textures. When you touch it,
you immediately feel the
