Statement: In general my approach to fiber working has always been defined by subordination of material in favor of expression and gesture, revealing the qualities of darkness and lightness, transparency, density, tension and tactility. To a high degree, complexity of surface and structure is a result of method of operation – by summarizing cable elements in various techniques the single particles generate a vivid, pulsating pattern.
