The colors in the rug will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.
I am a 25 year old artist based in Oslo, where I just finished my bachelor's degree in free art. As a painter I find inspiration in textiles and patterns, shapes and colour contrasts. Scale and size are two important factors in my work as I want the meeting with painting to be both a visual and bodily experience. Therefore, this competition has been an exciting challenge for me since I have been able to work with my themes but from a completely different angle. Here painting can become textile and the body can interact with the work in a new way, since you can experience it by standing in the middle of it and making it a part of your home.
Hopscotch - Grey carpet from India.
Handtufted carpets are made by hand using high quality raw materials, but rather than having knots that need to be tied, a special ”tufting gun” is used to push loops of yarn through a scrim (pre-woven backing). The last stage in the production is trimming the pile to the desired length, thereby exposing the thread ends for a softer pile.
This technique allows for a quick and effective process and gives the weaver more freedom and range to create detailed patterns and shapes otherwise restricted in handknotted carpets. The end result is a long lasting high quality carpet at an affordable price.
Wool is a natural textile fibre and one of the most sought after materials for rug making. Wool rugs are highly durable and perfectly capable of resisting wear and tear of every day use. Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.
