17 Jan Against the Grain – Wooden Textiles by Elisa Strozyk
Artist Elisa Strozyk is toying with our perceptions and we don’t mind a bit. Her stunning textiles challenge our assumptions about the nature and properties of wood. Far from the hard, fixed surfaces we associate with floors and furniture, her pieces provoke unexpected surprise – imagine the wonder of a wooden object that has flexibility and can be manipulated through touch. Thousands of geometric shapes are laser cut, then painstakingly hand attached to a textile base. The result? A transformative collection that is both reassuringly familiar and fantastically original.
