Mira Sohlén creates tapestries which are made from a unique method of tiling. Each tapestry is made from handmade tufted shapes in the finest wool (like mini-carpets), which are then sewn together. Inspired by improvised shape study, she continues to explore the infinitive interplay between positive and negative space.
“I love to work with my hands, and everything I have explored within design and textile has led me to this. I wanted to find a way to challenge classical craftsmanship but with a modern approach… I always search for unorthodox ways to execute projects; and I'm naturally drawn to deconstruction and reconstruction. Another constant is that I have a soft spot for the finest materials… The relationship between new thinking and high-quality material is the result of sustainable innovation. I never envision the final outcome of each work; my vision is my process. Within the chaos; I aim to find a pattern of comforting unity”.
