a textile research - Peony Rose
Flowers are beautiful. For as long as we can remember they have been a source of inspiration, the origin of decoration, a manifestation of luxury, adornment, love and victory. Floral arrangement for decorative, religious and symbolic purposes date back to the Ancient Egyptians. What is it that makes them beautiful to us? Is it the bright colour combinations, the surprising shapes and compositions, the textures, the strong contrasts?
Beauty extraction is a dissection of the flower’s beauty. The different elements of the flower are extracted and deconstructed. Shape, texture, color and composition are analysed and translated into a series of textiles. Each of the fabrics is a search for the origin of the flower’s beauty and the source of it’s decorative strength.
