Installation: Fabric, Textile, Fiber, Tufting on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric), Other. Fringes 100% Wool 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. www.siljapo.com Silja Pogule

I have tried using different mediums in my art such as collage, video, performance, but the closets to me is plain air painting, which has not changed much style wise, ever since i started painting, this is the art form, that I do not get tired of, but become happy. Being in nature gives me freshness and new vision for everyday life. I enjoy to paint freely moving my brush, mixing colors that reflect my mood and what I see around. I paint with showy colors, because living in Latvia the weather mostly winter lacks color, that is why my paintings are not dimensional, but the primary is showy colors. Henri Matisse, David Hockney works are very close to me, art form - Fauvism. At winter time I do my paintings in a studio, while taking inspiration from my photographies. Closest to me are oil paintings with bold strokes of color. In the latest years I use acrylic a lot, because it dries fast. Painting plein air joins me with liberation, sometimes unknown end results, which give new techniques and thematic ideas.
