Art Description

Sculpture: Textile, Acrylic, Metal on Wood.

Watch the video of making this piece in time-lapse on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blrayrADptI
This piece comes box framed with glass, framed in a white wooden frame.
I like creating geometrical patterns through various mediums. I like them to be precise in terms of their shape and construction. Using threads and nails has been one of the many creative ways I could use to make geometrical shapes and have fun with them. Each nail is hammered individually and then I weave the threads through the nails one by one by hand until I get the desired shape and its placement onto the sculpture. Together these shapes create a beautiful complexity and the fine lines of threads mixing with each other create a beautiful, intricate pattern. Around 200 meters of thread is used to make this art piece. The plywood in the background is painted with acrylic paints.
