TANGLES

Textile Slashing / Sewing, cutting, and folding.
2015-2017

The set of works that give shape to this series of textile works reveal a distance from the rigid geometric line in pursuit of exploring more organic and playful forms. The technique and processes of these works increase in complexity due to the increment of layers of fabric.

The intervention of the material requires learning to control factors such as friction and the thickness of the textile body being built. The design of the palette and each composition emerges from the direct combination (as opposed to the digital method used in other series) of a variety of available fabrics. With the use of more layers of fabric, chromatic interactions are further expanded. Similarly, the work of cutting and folding lacks initial design: the execution incorporates the spontaneity of the chalk tracing on the textile body, which draws the knotting of each tangle.
