Description

One of a series of pieces in which the artist has transferred scraps of bed linen patterns onto the canvas. The simple structure of a pattern repeated on a white background becomes a symbol of everyday life. Bedclothes, the fabric that covers us during sleep, represent our second skin. The artist is inspired by things common, ordinary, familiar since childhood. “They leave a lasting imprint in our memory, shapes our psyche and sense of aesthetics, and evokes pleasant (or unpleasant) feelings throughout our lives. They are important to us. And, at the same time, we grow emotionally attached to them. We make them meaningful,” explains the artist in one interview.
