Stencil paste-resist dyeing (Kata-zome), indigo, cotton linen
Dimensions:17×22 cm X 120

Year: 2020

A series of thirty stencils, each of them different from the others in the fold of the fabric and in the motion of its stripes. The fold creates a cut in the straight lines. At the same time, each piece is a cut within the work as a whole. This multiplicity of cuts and folds marks the fissures of time and the stemming locales of sequential patterns. The close range gaze from above, created by the very placing of the pieces horizontally on the floor, brings the viewer closer to the artist's creative process, which is mostly done while the material is spread on the floor. Therefore, the viewer's gaze at the work corresponds to the artist's gaze while creating it.
