"I begin with an idea... and then it becomes something else"
Texture in art, design, textiles... how to express and why it is so important to me?
Since i begun photograph an environment around me I drawn in texture. I find in a nature, urban environment, I realised that it is because of the layers of colour and the tactil nature of these layers.
The rusty peeling paint, irregular shape of the natural object help me to understand how the layers themselves tell a story or journey build up over a years, layer by layer to reveal a past.
I touch them, feel an irregular structure. its very common when people see some texturing almost automaticly they reach it to feel it.
I check the scent additionally.
How exciting how breath taking to consider who they were, what they produced, how many people touch it from the past and finally how many history they can tell us. The last aspect of my considerstion is on the borderline of abstraction, imagination and dream.
I realised to transfer my textile work onto canvas and have been experimenting with stitching on a previously natural dyed fabrics as cotton, silk, wool. Some of the texture i am going to create with knitting on a knitting mill to achieve a more different texture.
