My works are the result of my fascination with the relation between landscape and textiles.
I focus on going beyond environmental or cultural values, focused on the essential structure of the landscape and of the textile. Regarding my perception, it is not simply a translation of the other, but instead, one can be found in the other – the tree behaves the same in the forest as it does in the textile.
In a similar way, the mind finds comfort in the distant horizon as in woven memories of here and there.
Perhaps I found a meshwork of myth and memory that connects and interweaves a parallel universe not of deserts, glaciers, jungle, and dense forests, not of wayfinding or the exoticness of the other sense, but a place that is constructed by a million trillion threads that are witnesses of human perception.
