Artwork from my latest exhibition Warp Tool:
In older times when people used stationary phones, on which to dial you had to turn the numbers with a wheel, next to the phone was a piece of paper and a pen for notes, but usually when in a conversation, they were used for scribbling unconsciously. Rarely in these scribblings you could see specific forms, sometimes even something abstract. In my opinion it is a research worthy phenomenon, which nearly all of humanity has done. Working as a graphic designer, often between jobs, for example, while waiting for an answer from the client, in the program Adobe Illustrator, I drew some circle and not thinking much I deformed it with the “warp” tool. Continued to do it similarly to the older days when talking on the phone and scribbling on paper. Drew more circles and again deformed them, began to put them together, and as a result I had made an ornament, which did not have a real use in graphic design. When I began making carpets with the tufting technique, I remembered these unconsciously created drawings, and they finally had a use in a completely different medium – textile design.

Returning to my first profession – textile arts, I have evolved a long cherished project, making specially soft wool carpets with the tufting technique. This technique differs from the general textile techniques, with the fact that it uses a special tool to shoot fringes through a fabric, therefore creating the intended design. With this technique it is possible to achieve different heights of the fringes (100% wool), which creates a 3D Effect.
