in search for a drawing
I sew the snow by hand
cascades of water and sand
I stitch moonlight on ice
it is soft outside and firm within
everything is in doubt
and everything will be turned outward
I am looking for a drawing
and see it
then I draw with a needle upon it all
The choice of materials suggests polarities which are revealed through the sensory characteristics: dark – light, airy – opaque, soft – firm, gentle – strong, smooth – rough.
The polarity can also be perceived in the process of implementation: the visible seams of two materials, the hem are treated as the aesthetic quality themselves.
Sensual, soft, and occasionally erotic forms are not in contrast to the geometric and solid surfaces; the drawing sometimes follows the form and emphasizes it, sometimes discreetly liberates.
The integrating moment comes from the consistently pursuing effort to bring opposing qualities into harmony. Bravery lies in the ability to embrace opposites and attune them. Just like the women we are designing for.
