Carpets with paint (grey, blue, white, beige, black).  various sizes (0,3 – 0,7 m w x 0,5 m – 1,3 m h), 2011

Rugs of different sizes are painted multiple times, each layer drying before the next is added.
By painting the textile’s surface various times, less of the actual object is visible, and more of the texture  and form come to attention.
With each layer, the obejct itself loses more of its original purpose and meaning. Alluding to tradition this work deals with the way tradition changes over time, as it becomes more abstract, details are lost and new layers are added.
