Eke Krug – Reflections -Reconstructed reflection
Reflection, a difficult theme for me. You can look at it in many different ways. Reflection on water is the first thing to think about, you see it almost every day and it is beautiful in all circumstances.
And there is the reflection of the mind, interpreting the things and people you see, but do you always look in the right way? And then self-reflection, one of the most difficult ways to look….. Like looking in a damped mirror, you see, but not quite well.
That is where my quilt starts, trying to make a damped mirror, with some black fungus in it. Melting synthetic felt with metal foils and Tyvek, layer on layer, to create a new fabric, which is supposed to be the mirror. After that, the view of a broken mirror occurred to me, so that’s what it is. Trying to look in a damped, broken mirror. The pieces reconstructed, hoping it will give some reflection.
Synthetic felt, synthetic organza, vliesofix, metal foil, hotspots, Tyvek, synthetic velvet for the background, metallic yarn, invisible yarn and sewing yarn.
Melting felt, organza, hotspots, Tyvek and metal-foil to create new fabric, raw edge applique, all the quilting with straight- and embroidery stitches on the sewing machine.
