Textile Art & Weavers

In this TLmag online edition we have bundled the best articles about Textile Art & Weavers

Using various textile techniques like knitting, embroidery and tufting, Paris-based textile artist Manon Daviet transposes her drawings into tapestries, creating what she calls “volume paintings”. Here, she talks TLmag through her multidisciplinary practice, finding inspiration in comic books and her embracing of mysticism in nature.

Multi-disciplinary artist Igshaan Adams unpacks his identity through ritualistic performances and his use of handicrafts such as embroidery and beading. Delving into personal topics that look toward the environment in which he was raised, he resolves conflicting identities in a quest for spiritual enlightenment.

Greek artist Athina Ioannou maximizes and reinterprets painting through minimal and economic means. Her sensuous ‘abstract’ painting – what she refers to as ‘plus-painting’ – arises from the ‘intensification’ of ready-made carriers through the patient all-over saturation of her work with linseed oil.

Inspired by western and non-western masters alike, visual artist Sanam Khatibi interrogates our personal and political power-structures through material and scenic juxtapositions in her paintings, embroidery, tapestries and ceramic sculptures. TLmag talks to the Belgian artist and reflects on the underlying personal attributes that influence her intuitive practice.
