" A perspective of 2018"
This project started in a workshop and with my lack of a colour tool that could fit my purposes. It´s a custom made box that contains 800 pieces of hand painted colour shades. An object as much as an tool. I´ve made the shades daily and like a diary it has grown over the year.
" A perspective of 2018"
164 Shades of natural colours in 4 days. Research and sampling using only natural dye pigments for different qualities. Extracting, reusing and over dyeing with the beautiful plants and pigments that I we bought in India such as marigold, Indian madder, euphatorium, walnut, turmeric, logwood, bresilia and pomegranate.
Soon on my way to beloved Mother India. This time will work together with block printers in Baghru, Sanganer, Ajrakhpur. Combining research, practical work and by following the whole process of pattern making and preparing for the book project; “Block print, trace from hand and nature”. Follow the work at @theblockprintingbook on Instagram.
Sampling for upcoming project. Working on a library of natural dyes in collaboration with @saramariacarl. Also continuing with the “Collecting colour 2018” project. Made a super powerful indigo vat this time, named India. Each natural vat is an adventure and I have been through ups and downs.
Different aspects of colours. Working together with the textile artist Kajsa Löfstedt. We have been analysing and painting in different mediums and made a bank of colour shades. I also explored the inflection point in between denomination and colour.
New wool shawl samples. We have been dyeing with avocado, turmeric, ink, indigo, nettle and done several tryouts in-between the process of screen printing the restored “Ekudden” pattern by Carl Malmsten.
I´m preparing for the coming print workshop. Loaded with pattern inspiration from London.
We are working with a portrait of Kennet. Mindblowing, beautiful and an absolute pitch when it comes to materials, shapes and colors.
At Alice Lunds textile studio. Handwoven textiles, custom made. It´s something special with working spaces.
Working with sketches for 2017. Indigo, burned sienna and natural shades of linen.
Patterns, colors and a lots of line drawings.
In the process of transforming the stands for Stockholm Furniture Fair and Stockholms Auktionsverk from idea to reality. A lot of decisions about colours, shapes and materials.
We are working with Chromatics today. With inspiration from Louis Barragáns beautiful work. Transforming colors and proportions to patterns.
