Six textile works concentrated around the imagination of embroidery, used differently – worked differently.
The ground colors are painted on the textile surface to get a full heavy and at the same time delicate color. The printing with “puff” is a contradiction, the paste leaves marks from the weaved ground on the very small surface of each “needlepoint”.
1. 6 textile works for wall. 150 x 600 cm.
Handprinted on flax. Handpainted ground.
Excecuted at Statens Værksteder for Kunst, Gl. Dok, over a 6 month period.
2. Detail 150 x 100 cm.
3. For the exhibition I printed T-Shirts with different symbols distilled from the exhibited textile works meant to be sold at counter. However it was not allowed to sell T-Shirts at that time, only postcards and catalogues.
