Isn’t this image just SO beautiful?! These colorful textile art studies come from a workshop called “We Salute the Sketch,” done by textile designers Helle Gråbæk and Maria Kirk Mikkelsen. This work was done in conjunction with Gemakker Studio, in the heart of Denmark. I love the mix of color and pattern, and the addition of what looks like watercolor. More captivating images from this project after the jump! Happy almost weekend!
Here are their own words about the project: ” We salute the sketch and that which is unfinished. The incomplete that arouses curiosity and opens for opportunities. Raw edges, the presence of humans and time. We nurture the experimental. A process for the unknown, a manifestation of rapid thinking and the spontaneous quest for the sublime. We love colour and texture. Out with all the rules and the opinions of others and in with spots of colour. Bring on the distortion. Our textile training has taught us a love of pattern. Anni Albers and Gunta Stolzl. Our history, our passion. Vertical, horizontal, organic, geometric, contextual and contrasting.”
