My works are an expression of the process I'm going through in searching of the "line," checking the linear structure of weaving. I was always fascinated by the power of time revealed to us by its effects on materials, some looking indestructible in the present. The forces of erosion, wear and decay, destroy, but also create new patterns and surfaces. The works can be described as a compressed timeline of creation and destruction. Another aspect of my work is trying to explore the light and its affects on the exposed copper threads. The personal line is revealed during the exposure of the weaving construction. It's a guided process of destruction that leads back to creation. Some of the fabrics are woven first of very thin cotton and copper threads, then put through different processes of burning out, which expose the skeleton of the fabric. In others, I also use rust on felted wool in order to draw figures, or express the footprints of time. A stay in Japan (I was studying textile design there for two years), is a source of inspiration. I was affected by Japanese aesthetics, nature, the rhythm of life and the amazing combination of tradition and technology. The main inspiration are the traditional Japanese techniques. I use them, usually adjust them, in order to create something new that will represent me as a Western artist.
