The braided, knotted or sewn objects on the nets in Elisabeth's art pieces are geometrically constructed, often changing as the light shifts, in reflex bands and fiber optics. One sculptural piece made of spun linen, the motif is an interpretation of South African women's hairstyles and complicated braiding systems. Like many of her "network compositions", it has a three-dimensional effect. Elisabeth lets the stringent form language speak. She is an artist who loves black and white and gives waste material new features and aesthetic appeal. It is important to see the possibilities and the beauty of the little thing!Read more
Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.
Inspired by urban landscapes seen from the air, these framed compositions show the irregular repetition of our man-made patterns in nature. Each composition is individually crafted using sheets of layered paper and intricate cutwork and stitching. The paper is handmade by Deepa Panchamia at the Paper House in Fiskars Village, Finland, using cotton mixed with bits of nature.
Photographic book/catalogue by weaver and textile designer Åsa Pärson. The sample weave is Åsa’s sketch method for creating qualities with different characteristics where she distinguish between the tactility and the sensation of the textile. That is how the material behaves in the hand, against the skin and also how it looks. It is easy to replace a component and get a whole new result, a new surface, a new feeling that sometimes also becomes an association to something completely different from the weaving.
The second in a series of textile art symposia organised by Svenska Vävakademin will occur on the 6th of November at New Karolinska hospital in Solna. The focus of the symposiums is to discuss the current and future situation, terms and conditions for textile art in the public realm. This time with particular focus on textile art in health care facilities.

A little known fact is that he, among other things, started a silk weaving business in Lyon, which under the direction of others then grew to 400 small and large silk weavers. But by then, Casanova's troubled spirit had already found other countries and focus of his creativity.Read more
